Maple Wood Alzheimer's Special Care Center Offers a Chance to Experience What It's Like Living With Dementia

Experience Offers Inside View of Dementia

Maple Wood Alzheimer’s Special Care Center will host a unique opportunity for healthcare professionals to briefly, yet movingly, experience the challenges and struggles of a person living with dementia.

Dementia Live is an innovative program designed by a team of dementia, sensitivity and awareness, and professional development experts from the nationally recognized AGE-u-cate Training Institute.

Using specialized gear within a safe, experiential setting, Dementia Live provides participants a real-life simulation of what it must be like to live with dementia. “More than 5 million Americans live with Alzheimer’s, and the number continues to grow,” says Trish Markussen, Administrator. As a community dedicated to serving those living with this disease continue to lead lives of purpose and fulfillment, finding a cure is a mission extremely important to us.”

To pre-register for the Dementia Live experience, contact Maple Wood at 417.885.9050.  This event will be held at 1146 E. Lakewood Street, Springfield, Missouri 65810. To best serve participants, pre-registration is required and time slots are available from 11 am to 1 pm on Thursday, March 12, 2020.
