The public is invited to attend the Virtual Dementia Tour at Calhoun Healthcare Center, located at 1387 US 41 North in Calhoun, on Wednesday, Aug. 9 from 1 - 5 p.m.
The Virtual Dementia Tour uses patented sensory tools and instruction based on research conducted by P.K. Beville, M.S., a specialist in geriatrics and the founder of Second Wind Dreams.
During a Virtual Dementia Tour experience, trained facilitators guide participants outfitted with patented devices that alter their senses while they try to complete common everyday tasks and exercises. The tour enables caregivers to experience for themselves the physical and mental challenges faced by those with dementia and use the experience to provide better person-centered care.
Another special feature is proceeds from the Virtual Dementia Tour are used to fulfill the mission of Second Wind Dreams to make dreams come true for elders who live in long-term care.
To RSVP and schedule a time, call Dena Washington at 706-629-1289.
