At Home Instead of Gastonia, NC, our dedication to offering outstanding home care in Gastonia, NC is rooted in empathy and understanding. Recognizing that understanding the challenges faced by individuals living with dementia is essential, we've embarked on a new initiative. Our caregivers recently participated in an eye-opening training program that aimed to provide them with genuine firsthand experiences of the daily struggles and fears that our clients with dementia confront.
It's a common misconception that dementia solely affects memory; however, our training sets out to shatter this notion. Through a series of innovative experiments, our caregivers temporarily had their primary senses altered. Wearing glasses that restricted their vision and thick gloves that mimicked the loss of control and depth perception, our caregivers gained an immersive perspective into the world of those living with dementia.
