“Virtual Dementia Tour Creates Empathy for Growing Problem,” Keep Me Current, 3/29/18.

Lea Rust, CDP, and director of sales and marketing for the facility Avita of Stroudwater, in Westbrook, ME,  says that the Virtual Reality Tour “ ‘impacts family caregivers who take care of people at their homes and it impacts those of us who are doing this for a living.’” The Tour “attempts to alter an individual’s physical and sensory skills while they are being asked to complete simple tasks such as setting a table, counting out coins, getting dressed or taking medication in a darkened room.”  Rust says “‘it’s very, very eye-opening’” experience for the participants.  http://news.keepmecurrent.com/virtual-dimentia-tour-creates-empathy-for-growing-problem/
