ADRC Wolf River Region will host a unique opportunity for family and professional caregivers to briefly, yet movingly, experience the challenges and struggles of a person living with dementia.

Dementia Live™ is an innovative program designed by a team of dementia, sensitivity and awareness, and professional development experts from the nationally recognized AGE-u-cate® Training Institute headquartered in the Dallas/Fort Worth Metroplex. 

Using specialized gear within a safe, experiential setting, Dementia Live™ provides gives participants a real-life simulation of what it must be like to live with dementia. Participants gain greater awareness and understanding of the constant struggles (24/7) affecting persons with dementia. Greater understanding leads to more sensitive care partnering.

The Dementia Live program is the newest tool in the powerful arena of sensitivity awareness training being used for the booming number of direct care staff, family caregivers, healthcare professionals, and college and university students.  “We are at the crossroads of understanding aging and dementia; this understanding is not an option but a necessity for every member of our society.  It is a worldwide phenomenon affecting every level of our society”, states Pam Brandon, President and Founder of the AGE-u-cate Training Institute.  “We must equip those who are caring for and serving our aging population to better understand their challenges. We are living in a fast-aging world.”
