How does someone with dementia experience the world?
What would it be like to confused and bewildered all the time? How would the frustration of dementia manifest itself? Could you cope with the feelings of helplessness? This training workshop will mimic the reality of a dementia patient.
Sagebrook Senior Living in San Francisco will host a unique hands-on session for elder care professionals. Guided by the team at ElderConsult Education, participants will experience the challenges that an elder living with dementia frequently faces.
“Suit up” with devices to inhibit sight, hearing and touch. Then try to complete several day-to-day tasks. After the simulation, discuss your reactions. Then discuss how these insights might inform your approach to dementia and elder care. We hope this training will give caregivers, family members and elder care professionals insight into the experience of dementia. This understanding will give them better tools as they care for people living with dementia.
Each session lasts about 2 hours. It includes initial training, the experience, discussion and evaluation.
