A “Virtual Dementia Tour” is scheduled for Tuesday, Nov. 17, 12:30-3:30 p.m. at Fayette Senior Services’ Fayetteville location (The Life Enrichment Center, 4 Center Drive).

It’s hard to understand what someone with dementia is going through, but Senior Helpers will help others see into their world for a few short minutes. Quality care begins with family members and caregivers who are sensitive, patient, and kind, but how can we be empathetic when we haven’t experienced it firsthand.

The Virtual Dementia Tour has been a proven method to building a greater understanding of dementia through the use of sensory tools that gives us a chance to step into dementia patient’s shoes in a way you never imagined before.

The program is free but pre-registration is required at 770-461-0813 or register@fayss.org (include name, phone number and event title). FSS members and non-members welcome. For more information, visit www.fayss.org.
