The Kenwood by Senior Star team joined forces with Second Wind Dreams, an international nonprofit organization, to bring a mobile version of the Virtual Dementia Tour® to Cincinnati. It is the third U.S. mobile offering of the program, launching first in Florida and Nashville.
The tour, which simulates common Alzheimer’s and dementia symptoms and impairments, is a scientifically proven educational tool to help improve individuals’ understanding of dementia behaviors. As caregivers, this plays a key role in bridging our caregiver-care recipient divide and helping those impacted by the disease.
This past week, our staff and PK Beville, founder and CEO of Second Wind Dreams, visited news stations within the Cincinnati area to administer the mobile tour. Media were surprised – and touched by the VDT – which helped them understand what it’d be like to perform everyday tasks while experiencing both mental and physical restrictions.
If you’re interested in experiencing a VDT for yourself, please email Shelley Goering or call 513-823-3029.
