If you have a friend or loved one who is dealing with dementia, you won’t want to miss our next Dementia Café. Join us for a unique presentation on the newest technology to view what a person suffering from dementia might see. Hosted by SunCrest Home Health, presenter Christy Goodwin will provide us with a Virtual Dementia Tour (VDT), a groundbreaking method to build a greater understanding of dementia.

Understanding the Virtual Dementia Tour Experience With Christy Goodwin.

During this Virtual Dementia Tour experience, Christy will guide participants outfitted with patented devices that alter their senses while they try to complete common everyday tasks and exercises. The tour enables caregivers to experience for themselves the physical and mental challenges those with dementia face. If you’re caring for elderly parents, or have experiences with a friend who has dementia, you’ll gain valuable insight from this event with information on the latest dementia advances presented by Christy.

Christy is the founder of One Heart Many Hands Dementia Training for Caregivers, founded in 2015. She is recognized by the Alabama Board of Examiners of Assisted Living Administrators as a Category II Licensed Administrator for Assisted Living and Specialty Care Living facilities.

Thoughtful Dementia Care Planning Is Important.

According to the World Health Organization, worldwide, around 50 million people have dementia, and there are nearly 10 million new cases every year. The total number of people with dementia is projected to reach 82 million in 2030 and 152 million in 2050.
