Seeing Dementia through the eyes of a sufferer.

Bluebird Care staff were given a unique insight into what life is like for people living with dementia today.
Employees from the care provider’s Northumberland South region were among those who joined the Virtual Dementia Tour when it visited the company’s North Tyneside office in West Moor, Newcastle.
The tour, run by Experience Training Ltd – part of Training2Care – uses technology to enable participants to see what life could look like through the eyes of a person living with dementia.
Northumberland South Care Manager Susan Fender said: “We’re here today because it’s important staff understand dementia from a patient’s point of view.
“I’m sure everyone will find the experience valuable.”
