Virtual Dementia Tour


VDTAzura 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 VDT-3from 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.

    Hi Tami,

    Azura Memory Care doesn’t charge a fee when providing this to our Team, families and communities. However, if a business would like to have the Virtual Dementia Tour be provided at their place or to their Team they would need to contact Second Wind Dreams who owns and patented this program. If you’d like to learn more, please contact them directly at http://www.secondwind.org.

    Yours in Care,
    Paula Gibson
    Regional Director of Communications and Engagement

    Are these tours available year round or on certain dates? Definitely interested as caregiver of a dementia patient.

    Thank you for your interest in Azura Memory Care and the Virtual Dementia Tours that we provide. We have found the Virtual Dementia Tour to be so valuable that all of our Team Members go through it as part of the advanced MOSAIC Training program that we have developed and within their first 30 days. As far as what we offer in the community, we work with all of the 14 communities that we serve to offer it as requested and needed. If you like you can email info@azuramemory.com and ask to be notified of our next Virtual Dementia Tour community event in your area.
