The Dementia Experience promotes greater compassion for people living with Alzheimer’s disease and Dementia. A truly unique look at how the world is experienced to those suffering with these conditions.
Participants complete a series of tasks while wearing simple alterations to their senses. You will experience first-hand how your sight, hearing, sense of touch, and much more are impacted when dealing with these diseases…the confusion it causes and the frustration of knowing there is something that you’re supposed to do, but can’t recall what. Participants are invited to talk through and process their experience with Windhorse Staff and other participants afterwards.
Duration is 45 minutes.
