T2C Virtual Dementia Tour

Over the first two weeks in February, Highfield Healthcare were delighted to welcome Training 2 Care UK Ltd to provide an incredible training experience for our staff, volunteers and families.

The Virtual Dementia Tour is a scientifically and medically proven method of giving a person with a healthy brain the chance to experience what dementia might be like. Each session allows participants to enter the world of the person and understand which simple changes need to be made to their practice and environment to really improve lives of people with dementia.

Invented 25 years ago in America by Professor PK Beville and owned by Second Wind Dreams, Training 2 CARE are UK partners providing training across England, Scotland, Ireland and Wales.  The Virtual Dementia Tour has now been proven during research produced by Ulster University to change practice within 95% of participants, improve knowledge in 97% of participants and improve outcomes for 100% of clients.
