Free Virtual Dementia Tour
Bennington Project Independence (BPI) is able to offer an amazing educational experience for caregivers in our community thanks to a grant from the National Caregiver Support Initiative through the Southwestern Vermont Council on Aging. The Second Wind Dreams Virtual Dementia Tour will be free of charge to family caregivers and community partners on September 4 and 18, and October 2 and 16. It is a unique opportunity to briefly experience what it must be like to face everyday life challenges with a dementia or cognitive impairment. All of the staff at BPI have had the opportunity to participate in the Virtual Dementia Tour as part of their commitment to providing person-sensitive care. Additional tours will be held on the second Thursday and third Wednesday of every month. To learn more about tour dates, call BPI at 802-442-8136.
