The DEMENTIA Live training is an excellent interactive dementia experience program. It focuses on completing a series of tasks from the perception of a person with dementia, all the while under interfering circumstances. He attended the training for our office and in a “Train the Trainer” program geared for us to be able to return to our communities and train our staff and family members of those with loved ones with dementia. It was a very “eye-opening” and emotional experience which allowed us to see for ourselves how people with Dementia live and perform when given orders and directions. We quickly learned that people will react very close to their character and emotional state.
