Mount Pleasant Gardens Offers Caregivers a Chance to Experience What It's Like Living with Dementia
MOUNT PLEASANT, S.C., January 6, 2020 (Newswire.com) - Mount Pleasant Gardens, a leader in providing quality care and housing services to people living with memory loss, is hosting a special event designed to help caregivers experience the challenges of living with dementia. Dementia Live is an innovative program designed by a team of dementia experts from AGE-u-cate Training Institute. This special event will be held at 3:00 p.m. to 5:00 p.m. on Wednesday, Jan. 8, 2020 at the community located at 1025 Hungryneck Blvd. Mount Pleasant, SC 29464.
Dementia Live uses special gear to help simulate the cognitive impairments and sensory changes that are part of living with dementia. Participants will gain a sense of the obstacles and difficulties those living with dementia face daily.
“The goal of this program is to give caregivers a greater sense of understanding and empathy for what their loved ones face every day,” says Leanne Lovin, Community Resource Director. “By having a greater understanding, we hope to foster a greater sense of compassion, helping caregivers to provide better support for the ones they love.”
