It happens to all of us: we forget where we left our keys, we know that person looks familiar but just can’t think of her name, we wonder for a moment just what day it is. But for those with Alzheimer’s and other forms of dementia, loss of memory, combined with other cognitive issues and confusion, takes these struggles and frustrations to a whole new level that most of us have been unable to comprehend.
Until now, that is, thanks to the Alzheimer’s Research UK. They’ve created a unique virtual reality game designed to put players in the shoes of someone living with dementia. Find out what it’s like to walk a mile in the shoes of someone with Alzheimer’s. Click here to learn more and download the game.
Trying this game ourselves reinforced what we practice here on a daily basis: the need for compassion, patience and kindness in caring for the elderly and those struggling with the challenges of Alzheimer’s and other dementias.
