Your decision to use the Virtual Dementia Tour to spread awareness of the impact of dementia on everyday life of our seniors is a testament to the world that you have joined our mission to improve the lives of those with this disease as well as their caregivers. We thank you for your commitment and look forward to working with you to develop your comprehenisve staff and community training program.
The VDT is a unique, interactive program proven to improve communication and care. Created by P.K. Beville, a specialist in Geriatrics, this valuable, easy to follow experiential training is designed for care giving facilities and community organizations to help identify with and understand patients' behaviors and needs. This Comprehensive Program has been used for new employees, hospitals, colleges and universities, and other caregivers. Upon the completion of VDT training, caregivers were able to identify with and better understand the behaviors and needs of those in their care.
When dementia strikes, it strikes the whole community, not just the individual. The Community Edition was developed to provide a way for members of the community to experience the VDT and walk away with their own VDT experience results, recommendations for their business, family or anywhere that dementia is experienced.
Appropriate participants include:
VDT Training will give you the foundation you will need prior to engaging members of your community. To ensure quality control, the prerequisite for conducting the Virtual Dementia Tour in a community setting is that you participate in VDT Fundamentals or Facilitator Training.
Fundamentals Training is an online, 30 minute video which is very important for professional use of the Virtual Dementia Tour Manual. Specific sections of the manual will be addressed, along with basic review of the study and implications. You will also receive information that will best prepare you to answer questions from public participants about Second Wind Dreams and protect the integrity of the Virtual Dementia Tour experience. One Fundamentals Training link is included in your purchase of the VDT Comprehensive Program.
Facilitator Training is a 5.5 NAB CEU course designed to give you an in depth review of the study, as well as step-by-step instructions for appropriate use and application in a professional and community setting. Led by a VDT Certified Trainer, Facilitator Training is strongly recommend for all VDT users, and is the first step for those interested in becoming a VDT Certified Trainer.
Annual license fee will apply. Please review the License/Terms & Conditions of Use Agreement.
