Azura Memory Care is proud to be one of only two providers in Wisconsin to have a Certified Virtual Dementia Tour Trainer approved by Second Wind Dreams among its Team Members. Paula Gibson, Director of Community and Business Relations and one of only forty Certified Virtual Dementia Tour Trainers in the world, recently provided Facilitator Training to the Azura Leadership Team.
Learning to create a positive environment for those with dementia can only come from attempting to walk in their shoes. The Virtual Dementia Tour allows us to do just that. For ten minutes participants go through a simulation of what it is like for a person with dementia. It is unnerving and eye-opening. The Leadership Team will now be able to offer this experience to our caregivers, families and communities.
