“I had no idea.”
“Everyone on the planet needs to experience this!”
“You are an active learner… you walk in the shoes of someone with dementia.”
“It’s a true head-to-toe experience.”
“There is an immediate and lasting change of perception.”
“It will touch your heart.”

These are just some of the quotes we’ve heard about the Virtual Dementia Tour (VDT), the original, ground-breaking, evidence-based, and scientifically proven method of building a greater understanding of dementia. The VDT uses 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 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.
