Dementia Workshop and Virtual Dementia Tour

Workshop and Virtual Tour Description: What is normal in regard to brain function as we age? Are the bouts of forgetfulness we experience normal or should we be concerned? Are you caring for a loved one with a dementia-related disorder? If so, where do you go for tips on how to handle challenging situations, support and encouragement? Join us to find out the answers to those questions plus a whole lot more!

The Virtual Dementia Tour is a sensitivity training created by Dr. P.K. Bellville and the company Second Winds Dreams. It will give individuals insight into what an average day for a person with dementia may be like.

2.      Understand the early signs and progression of dementia.

3.      Learn about current interventions and community resources.
