“There is no greater form of respect, than to walk in someone else’s shoes.” ~ PK Beville, Creator of the Virtual Dementia Tour
Azura Memory Care of Beloit and Clinton is excited to be holding the World-Renowned Virtual Dementia Tour on Wednesday, November 13th from 1:00 pm – 6:00 pm at the Home2 Suites, which is located at 2750 Cranston Road in Beloit.
Every hour a group of 20 attendees will be provided with a presentation about the Virtual Dementia Tour, be given the opportunity to experience the 10 minute experiential tour and then discuss and learn techniques to better communicate and engage those with memory loss.
As part of Azura’s exclusive MOSAIC Training and Engagement philosophy, the Virtual Dementia Tour is an EXCEPTIONAL way for those without memory loss to gain understanding of what those with dementia see, hear and feel. It also explains why they may act or react in the ways that they do and give a better view into the world they live in every day.

The Virtual Dementia Tour is used internationally in 27 different countries to enhance the care and understanding of those living with dementia. Millions of people have experienced the Virtual Dementia Tour and each comes away with a more compassionate heart, mindful approach to caring for those with memory loss and awareness that the person with dementia has a disease they can not control, but are only trying to survive.
"We want to thank you for the loving special care you took of our mother, Diane. It was truly mom's home and you all became part of our family. Everything was home for her....from the beautiful rooms, large sunny windows all around, good food made with love, fun and personal activities from people who really loved our mom. We would highly recommend your facility to anyone. The staff from the director, to the doctor, to the nurse, to the caregivers and the maintenance man were all extremely helpful, caring, loving and professional. There are not enough words to say how much we appreciate all of you. Your exceptional care, kindness, and love were beyond anything we could have imagined. You were part of our family, and we will miss you." - Gail Sommers and Deborah Guse
