VIRTUAL DEMENTIA TOURS

You can never fully understand what those living with dementia face on a daily basis, but our Virtual Dementia Tour comes close. A Virtual Dementia Tour puts you in the shoes of someone with dementia, such as Alzheimer’s disease, so you can gain a deeper understanding of their challenges and frustrations. We encourage caregivers and family members to take a tour to learn more about dementia. It can make a world of difference in helping you communicate effectively with those living with dementia.

During the Virtual Dementia Tour, you’ll experience sensory stimulation that’s similar to what people living with dementia feel. It’s ideal for caregivers and others who are close to friends and relatives with dementia.

For more information about when the next Virtual Dementia Tour will be offered at Heritage of Sandy Plains or to hear more about our memory care community in Marietta, GA, contact us today.
