The Virtual Dementia Tour temporarily alters participants’ physical and sensory abilities using sensory tools and instruction based on research conducted by P.K. Beville, geriatric specialist and founder of Second Wind Dreams®.

• When used regularly, the Virtual Dementia Tour has been shown to decrease psychoactive medication and acute hospitalization for behavioral incidents.

• The Virtual Dementia Tour offers hope by providing practical ways to provide insight and support.

• More than 3 million people have experienced the Virtual Dementia Tour and it is used in a variety of settings including healthcare, higher education, and the community.

• The Virtual Dementia Tour meets and exceeds federal mandates for additional training for every healthcare entity providing care to people with memory impairments.
Trained facilitators 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, and use the experience to provide better person-centered care. And here’s another special feature… proceeds from the Virtual Dementia Tour are used to fulfill the mission of Second Wind Dreams to make dreams come true for elders who live in long-term care.
