These are just some of the quotes heard from guests who have experienced the Virtual Dementia Tour. The Tour uses patented sensory tools and trained facilitators to 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 those with dementia face, and use the experience to provide better person-centered care.
Episcopal Place invites you to experience the Virtual Dementia Tour in partnership with Janice Williams & the Senior Services Division. This free community event is ideal for caregivers, first responders, police officers, fire fighters, local businesses, community groups, and houses of worship.
Guests will also enjoy an Episcopal Place health fair in partnership with Amedisys Hospice & Home Health, Alacare Hospice & Home Health, Comfort Care Hospice & Home Health, Collat Jewish Family Services, Medirest, St. Vincent's Home Health, and Home Instead Home Care.
This free event is open to the public. Street parking is available.
