    Virtual Dementia Tour

     

    Second Wind Dreams is a non profit organization founded in 1997. SWD has created the Virtual Dementia Tour Experience (VDT) and its mission is to change the perception of aging and create dementia friendly environments. The VDT simulates the effects of aging and dementia so anyone can personally experience the cognitive and physical challenges of dementia by " walking in their shoes." The VDT is evidenced based and it has been experienced by more than 2 million participants in 20 countries. Overall experience results in improved person centered care.

    The link above is the VDT experience we will begin facilitating for our professional community, caregivers, aging community and families of loved ones battling Dementia and Alzheimer's. Please contact Jennifer Meredith, Home Care Consultant  to schedule a VDT experience with our care team. Once we confirm a date we can discuss logistics of the actual experience and plan accordingly.

    Neighbor Ride offers an easy, flexible and rewarding way to give back. Volunteer drivers provide rides for seniors that enable them to tend to their healthcare needs, shop, enjoy social outings, participate in faith services, and more. Along the way, great friendships are made and seniors who can no longer drive get to stay connected to the people, resources and activities that add meaning and quality to their lives. Daytime, evening and weekend volunteer opportunities are available; and no set schedule is required. Drivers simply choose to provide rides that are convenient to their homes, offices and daily routines. Parent volunteers are welcome and encouraged to bring their little ones along for a wonderful family service experience.

    Join us for Volunteer Orientation in the Neighbor Ride office on any Tuesday at 9:30am or on Wednesday, January 17th at 6pm. Offsite orientation sessions can also be arranged for groups of five or more. Contact Patrice Cerwonka or Holly Waddell at 410-884-7433 or volunteer@neighborride.org  for more information about volunteering. You can also visit us online at www.neighborride.org
