The Kenwood by Senior Star Brings Mobile Virtual Dementia Tour to Cincinnati

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.

      Hi Annette,

      The mobile version of the tour (using the converted RV) will be available through the end of August, though The Kenwood offers Virtual Dementia Tours year round inside an apartment on their campus.

      If you’re interested in experiencing a VDT for yourself, there is a form you can complete on this web page, under the title “Virtual Dementia Tour.” Though please let us know if you have any further questions or concerns! Thanks!

    How is a tour scheduled? I have made several attempts with the former provided without success. When are the tours available? Is there a number we can call?

    • The Kenwood by Senior Star says:

      Hi Cathye,

      So sorry to hear the form is causing you trouble! If this form (under the title “Virtual Dementia Tour” on the web page) still does not work for you, you are able to call The Kenwood by Senior Star at 513-258-2815 to schedule a tour. The mobile version of the tour (using the converted RV) will be available through the end of August, though The Kenwood offers Virtual Dementia Tours year round inside an apartment on their campus. Upon calling that number, you’ll be able to set up a time with The Kenwood to visit for your tour.

      Please let us know if you have any further questions or concerns! Thanks!

    I was having the same issue for trying to register for a slot. When I clicked on “Submit”, that button became “Please Wait.”, and didn’t do anything else. Thank you for giving a phone number.
