Marling Court's dementia awareness day success
Marling Court's dementia awareness day success
MARLING Court Care Home in Hampton hosted a dementia awareness day.  
The aim of the day was to give people a better understanding of how dementia affects people living with it, and it was attended by more than 40 people from the local community.  
Attendees included staff from local businesses, families caring for people living with dementia, healthcare professionals and charity workers, who all agreed it had provided a valuable insight into the effects of the condition. 
Key to understanding this was the opportunity to join a 'virtual dementia tour'. Led by Training2care, it was invented 20 years ago in America by world renowned professional PK Beville, who created the experience as part of her research into dementia.  
Each participant was fully immersed in an experience that was the closest we can give a person with a healthy brain to what dementia might be like.
