Learning About Dementia Through Experiential Learning

Primary tabs

Explore the basics of dementia and the aging process and how dementia is not associated with typical aging. This talk will expose dementia in our rapidly aging population as well as the consequences for families and those working in the care sector. 

Learning About Dementia Through Experiential Learning will highlight ways to build resilience to damage of the brain and its ability to change throughout life, based on peer-reviewed research. Participants will also have the opportunity to ‘walk in the shoes’ of those with dementia in simulated, experiential learning opportunities related to aging and psychosis.

  • What is dementia?
