East Arkansas Area Agency on Aging

Come on out and join us as we bring a unique new experience to our community!

Experience this unique and powerful program for healthcare professionals, Nursing Students, and family members coping with aging spouses, parents, clients, or patients dealing with physical and cognitive function losses.

The Virtual Dementia Tour® is a real-life simulation that allows you to experience the sights, sounds, and feelings that those with Dementia adapt to every day as they try to accomplish simple tasks. Enhance your understanding of what it is really like to live with Dementia by attending Care Alternatives Hospice Virtual Dementia Tour® Program.

While we will never be able to fully understand how Dementia feels, the VDT® demonstration is an attempt to provide profound insight into the lonely, frightening world of Dementia. This enlightening program helps all of us to perceive aging and cognitive impaired diseases in a more compassionate way.
