Order the VDT Comprehensive Edition

Anyone involved in the care of seniors will encounter individuals living with dementia. The insight provided by the Virtual Dementia Tour® (VDT) Comprehensive Edition will alter perspectives and change the way your staff approaches care-giving. One very important result of use of the VDT is a reduction in the use of psychoactive medication once staff has a better understanding of expected dementia behavior. The Virtual Dementia Tour has also been lauded as the game changer in helping staff understand what person-centered care actually entails. The bottom line is that resident quality of life will improve and caregivers will benefit from a reduction in the number of challenging situations and an increased connection to those they serve.

The Virtual Dementia Tour Comprehensive Edition includes:

  • Online training for facilitator(s) on how to conduct the Virtual Dementia Tour (VDT)
  • The latest Virtual Dementia Tour manual, packed with research, complete instructions, and the forms you’ll need to conduct the VDT experience
  • Our patented, time-tested VDT components which have been clinically researched and consistently proven to simulate many of the common effects of aging and dementia; over 25 total pieces come with the program
  • An eye-opening video of a family as they experience the VDT and details on how the experience changed their perception of dementia
  • Special printed materials designed to assist non-professional participants in understanding their personal VDT experience
  • Staff training tools, including a comprehensive debriefing outline, participant handouts, and assessment forms
  • Regular updates on best practices, and new developments, with the VDT
  • Online access to order additional components and view program media files.
  • VDT Online App which includes digital forms and online database for creating records and running automated reports that provide analysis for both community and healthcare group training events.

The Virtual Dementia Tour Comprehensive Edition, a valuable, easy-to-follow experiential training program, is designed for use by care giving facilities and community organizations to help identify with and understand behaviors and needs of people living with dementia. It has been used to train the staff at hospitals, home care agencies, hospices, and colleges and universities. After experiencing the VDT, staff members are able to identify with, and better understand, the behaviors and needs of those with dementia. You can also use the Virtual Dementia Tour to spread awareness of the impact of dementia on everyday life of our seniors. We thank you for your commitment and we look forward to working with you to develop comprehensive staff and community training programs.
