Dementia 24/7 – Dementia Simulation Training
Caring for individuals with Alzheimer’s and other dementia’s can be challenging. Their actions and verbal communication might not make sense, and conversing with others is sometimes difficult. They live with their condition twenty-four/seven, so it’s imperative that providers identify with the complexity of their world. Families, caregivers and professionals can reach a deeper level of understanding regarding patients living with dementia by spending some time “walking in their shoes.” Dementia Twenty-Four/Seven’s simulation activities mimic what it’s like to feel confused, frustrated, isolated, and much more. Participants will gain compassion and empathy while they participate in the five activities and share their newfound understanding with other participants. If interested call 770-722-7641 for dates, times and locations.
