Learning to create a positive environment for those with dementia can only come from attempting to walk in their shoes. Created by P.K. Beville, a specialist in geriatrics, this valuable, easy to follow experiential kit is designed to instill hope in professional and family caregivers, providing them with a tool to move from sympathy to empathy and better understand the behaviors and needs of their loved ones and patients.
The Family Edition is to be used by a person or family who is trying to understand how dementia affects a loved one.
Fundamentals, Facilitator and Certified Training programs are important for the professional use of the VDT.
