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
