Take a Walk in Their Shoes- Alzheimer’s Experience

Jonesboro, AR ~ When the UAMS Schmieding Home Caregiver Training Program rode into Walnut Ridge, Arkansas to offer a Dementia Experience, the staff at Lawrence Hall Nursing Center were able to “Take a Walk in Their Shoes.” This sensory activity provides an in-depth look into what even simple, everyday tasks can be like for a person living with Alzheimer’s

A great program for family caregivers, healthcare professionals, or others to experience a simulation of the physical and mental challenges that a person living with Alzhiemer’s deals with on a day to day basis.  It is our goal that they will use the experience to provide better person-centered care.
