BULLHEAD CITY — Joshua Springs Senior Living, with the partnered efforts of the Colorado River Women’s Council, will be hosting the Virtual Dementia Tour from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Tuesday, May 16, at Joshua Springs, 2995 Desert Sky Blvd. in Bullhead City.
This opportunity is being offered to anyone interested in gaining a greater understanding of the impact of Alzheimer’s disease and related dementias or those living with the disease.
The Virtual Dementia Tour is the original and groundbreaking, evidence-based and scientifically proven method of building a greater understanding of dementia through the use of patented sensory tools and instruction based on research conducted by P.K. Beville, M.S., a specialist in geriatrics and the founder of Second Wind Dreams. During a Virtual Dementia Tour experience, trained facilitators guide participants through common everyday tasks and exercises while outfitted with patented devices that alter their senses. The tour enables individuals to experience for themselves the physical and mental challenges those with dementia face, then use the experience to provide better person-centered care.
Individuals can schedule their tour time which takes approximately 45 minutes by calling 928-763-1212.
This program is free, however, donations will be accepted and sent to the Second Wind Dreams foundation where they will be used to fulfill Second Wind Dreams’ mission to make dreams come true for elders who live in long-term care.
