Virtual Dementia Tour
What is the Virtual Dementia Tour?
It’s your window into their world.
Anyone involved in the care of individuals with dementia will benefit from the insight provided by the Virtual Dementia Tour® (VDT). It will alter perspectives and change the way your staff approaches caregiving.
- One very important result of use of the VDT is a reduction in the use of psychoactive medication once staff has a better understanding of expected dementia behavior.
- The VDT has been lauded as the game changer in helping staff understand what person-centered care actually entails.
- Resident quality of life will improve and caregivers will benefit from a reduction in the number of challenging situations and an increased connection to those they serve.
