What is Dementia Live
Dementia Live is a powerful yet easy to deliver real-life simulation experience that immerses participants into life with dementia, resulting in a remarkable inside-out understanding of cognitive impairment and sensory change.
How Does It Work?
Participants are outfitted in specialized gear and given a series of tasks to perform within an enclosed "experience" area. The challenges and struggles one faces become very real to the participant because they are experiencing it themselves. This triggers a heightened awareness and understanding of those with dementia. Following the experience, a trained coach meets with them in a unique "empowerment session" where participants obtain valuable tools to improve communications and care processes.
What is the benefit of the Authorized Designation
Eldercare providers may become a designated Dementia Live Provider. As a Coach, you can offer Dementia Live as ongoing staff training, share this with families and offer it as Community Education. These three components deliver multiple benefits to your organization. As an authorized Dementia Live provider you will be issued:
