Please visit Training 2 Care's stand on D930 to book your place on the Virtual Dementia Tour at the show.

Virtual Dementia Tour

The Virtual Dementia Tour is the only scientifically proven method of giving a person an experience of what dementia might be like. The Virtual Dementia Tour was invented 21 years ago in America by PK Beville and Training 2 Care are the UK partners for this ground-breaking training course.

Glenn Knight, Managing Director of Training 2 CARE comments “The Virtual Dementia Tour is all about understanding what a person living with dementia experiences daily to gain a greater understanding. Only by being able to walk in the shoes of a person living with dementia can we truly understand the changes that we need to make to improve the quality of care, improve environments, improve attitudes and really improve lives. Training 2 CARE are proud to be working with the Dementia, Care & Nursing Expo to bring this to you”

This feature will grant access to an outstanding professional tool that offers unique and essential perspectives for caring professionals. By the end of this you will be able to recognise the issues faced by people with dementia and start to think about the correct provision of services to meet their needs. This is exactly what Caroline Dinenage, Minister of State for Care, experienced when she partook in the Virtual Dementia Tour last year at the event, granting herself an emphatic view of living with dementia and allowing for a new level of insight.

‘This kind of event is important to share best practice, their fantastic ideas, see what kind of products are on the market to stay at the top of their game. It’s a wonderful opportunity’ Caroline Dinenage, Minister of State for Care.

In the UK, the Virtual Dementia Tour has been commissioned by nursing homes, CQC, care providers, NHS, ambulance services, Police, fire service, colleges, universities, prisons, and families in England, Ireland, Scotland, and Wales. The Virtual Dementia Tour has been researched in 16 countries and in the UK by Essex University and Ulster University. The Virtual Dementia Tour is recognised to change practice and has even been shortlisted for 2 awards by Skills for Care and the Times Educational Supplement.

In March the Virtual Dementia Tour will feature on the 'Restaurant That Makes Mistakes', a Channel 4 series and we were privileged to take various celebrities through the experience. They found the Virtual Dementia Tour an experience that must not be missed and we are proud of the support that they and everyone else has given us.
