The Virtual Dementia Tour is a scientifically proven method that builds sensitivity and awareness in individuals caring for those with dementia by temporarily altering participants’ physical and mental abilities. This evidence-based program simulates changes associated with mid-stage cognitive decline. Geriatric specialist, P.K. Beville authored and created the Virtual Dementia Tour. This patented program offers hope by providing practical ways to create an environment that supports the disease and increase understanding.
