VDT® Community Ambassador

Virtual Dimension Tour Kit

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. 

 

VDT Fundamentals Training will give you the foundation you will need prior to engaging members of your community. The information received from this online training is important for professional use of the Virtual Dementia Tour Manual. Specific sections of the manual will be addressed, along with a basic review of the study and implications. Once you have completed this training, we will add your organization to our list of approved VDT Community Ambassadors. This list will be visible on our website!

 

Your decision to conduct the Community Edition of the Virtual Dementia Tour is a statement to the world that you have joined our mission to fight the impact this disease has on society. We thank you for your commitment and look forward to working with you to develop your community program.

 

Appropriate participants include:

  • EMS providers
  • police officers
  • firemen
  • local businesses
  • community groups
  • churches

 

To insure quality control, there are several prerequisites to conducting the VDT outside of a clinical or educational setting:

 

1. You must be a Group Edition user. If you already own the Group Edition of the Virtual Dementia Tour, then you are all set! If you do not own the Group Virtual Dementia Tour, you may purchase it now.   Only Group Edition VDT owners are eligible to conduct the Community Edition.  To purchase a Group Edition, please click here.

 

2. You must participate in Virtual Dementia Tour Fundamentals Training. The information you will receive from this online, 30 minute video 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. Upon completion of this video, you will be asked to participate in a short quiz. Once completed, we will add your organization to our list of approved Community Ambassadors. This list will be visible on our website!
