This is a free MUST experience for everyone who works with our elders.  Not just physical sensitivity training, but the VDT also alters your cognitive abilities with scientifically proven elements and circumstances, which simulate the world in which those with dementia live.  The VDT has been described as an impetus for culture change.

When we know better, we provide better care.  This is the best educational tool for caregivers to understand the disease.  The VDT offers hope by providing practical ways to create an environment that supports the disease and increase understanding.  Second Wind Dreams has provided this patented experience to numerous organizations including The Center for Disease Control (CDC), U. S. Department of Health & Human Services, Google, Facebook, Wellstar, Johnson & Johnson, WebMD and Caesars Entertainment.
