EDIE – Educational Dementia Immersive Experience

December 2, 2020 @ 10:00 am - 12:30 pm AEDT

This workshop enhances your knowledge of dementia whilst exploring a supportive approach to living more confidently with dementia.

By using virtual reality goggles this experience allows users to explore a moment in time for Edie, who has a diagnosis of dementia. The carer will face the difficulties experienced by Edie as he undertakes simple activities of daily living.

EDIE for carers can assist carers to:

• have increased empathy for the person in their family living with dementia

• improve communication with the person living with dementia

• experience the benefits of dementia-friendly changes to the home environment

• understand how changes in communication, behaviour and environment can benefit the person living with dementia and their loved ones

Cost: $10 per carer

This activity is open only to carers registered with Carers ACT who have not previously.
