A virtual dementia tour is a unique, hands-on simulation to learn firsthand the day-to-day challenges of living with dementia.
The tour is ideal for:

- medical and health care professionals
- churches, social organizations, and community groups
- local businesses with clients and customers living with dementia
During the tour, you will be outfitted with clothing and accessories designed to simulate the experience of a person with dementia. You will be assigned a set of simple tasks such as folding clothes, setting the table, or counting change while being observed by the trained facilitators. After the tour, you have the opportunity to meet with Alliance staff to learn more about your experience and find resources on how you can support a person living with dementia!
The total experience takes approximately 30 minutes.
