Virtual Dementia Tour

Anyone involved in the care of seniors will encounter individuals living with dementia. The insight provided by the Virtual Dementia Tour® (VDT) Comprehensive Program will alter perspectives and change the way your staff approaches caregiving. One very important result of use of the VDT is a reduction in the use of psychoactive medication once staff has a better understanding of expected dementia behavior. The Virtual Dementia Tour has also been lauded as the game changer in helping staff understand what person-centered care actually entails. The bottom line is that resident quality of life will improve and caregivers will benefit from a reduction in the number of challenging situations and an increased connection to those they serve.

The Virtual Dementia Tour Comprehensive Program includes:

  • Hands-on training for two facilitators on how to conduct the Virtual Dementia Tour (VDT)
  • The latest Virtual Dementia Tour manual, packed with research, complete instructions, and the forms you’ll need to conduct the VDT experience
  • Our patented, time-tested VDT components which have been clinically researched and consistently proven to simulate many of the common effects of dementia
  • An eye-opening DVD of a family as they experience the VDT and details on how the experience changed their perception of dementia
  • Special printed materials designed to assist non-professional participants in understanding their personal VDT experience
  • Staff training tools, including a comprehensive de-briefing outline, participant handouts, and assessment forms
  • A one-year agreement to use the patented Virtual Dementia Tour
  • Regular updates on best practices, and new developments, with the VDT
  • An invitation to our annual conference and expo for those who use the VDT to advance the understanding of dementia
