Experience the Virtual Dementia Tour in Red Oak, TX
As our population ages, cognitive decline and dementia are becoming a common diagnosis for seniors. Currently there are more than 5.4 million families in this country living with Alzheimer’s disease or other types of dementia. All too often, those interacting with these individuals do not have a clear understanding of how dementia impacts the person with the diagnosis, and more importantly, how to best assist them in being successful in living with this diagnosis.
The Virtual Dementia Tour is your chance to take a walk in the shoes of those living with Dementia.

Beville, M.S. in 1997 to fulfill dreams of those living in elder care communities and to research ways to improve their quality of life. All donations from tours are given to Second Wind Dreams to continue funding their elder dreams program.*
