Virtual Dementia Tour

If you've ever struggled to understand what your loved one with memory loss is experiencing, Cornerstone's Virtual Dementia Tour can provide a glimpse of the world through his or her eyes. Through our immersive program, you'll be given the chance to "walk in the shoes" of your loved one.

Throughout the eight -minutes, individuals will be asked to perform a number of simple daily tasks while wearing the following items:

  • Vision-impairing goggles
  • Headphones to impair overall hearing
  • Latex gloves filled with corn and taped closed to mimic an arthritic feeling in the hands

At the end of the experience, you'll leave with a better understanding of your loved one's condition. Many participants report increased patience and compassion and less anger and frustration with their loved one's behaviors.
