The Dementia Experience promotes greater compassion for people living with Alzheimer’s disease and dementia. Participants complete a series of tasks while wearing simple alterations to their senses, like vision-limiting goggles. The experience mimics the frustrations caused by dementia. Participants are invited to talk through and process their experience with Windhorse Staff and other participants afterwards. Duration is 45 minutes.
We offer this event free and open to the public 3-4 times/year. Check back here for a sign-up when we have a public event open. The next upcoming Dementia Experience is TBD. To sign up and reserve a space, please click the following link…

“My wife had dementia and needed to be placed in a memory care community in Louisville.
The Windhorse Care partners cared for my wife with compassion, patience and understanding. I felt Christine was safe and engaged and the team brought a person centered approach and contemplative practice. They were a special group.
The team meetings were always about how best to provide for Christine. WEC worked closely with the care community staff to compliment the care from both groups.
I think the most surprising part of this experience was how engaged WEC was from intake, supervision, team leadership, companions to the caregiver support group.” – Harry Lindmark
