Williams County Hillside Country Living has received a grant of $4,000 from the BAF for the purchase of a Virtual Dementia Tour (VDT) Program. This innovative program builds a greater understanding of dementia through the use of patented sensory tools and instruction. Hillside staff have been trained as tour facilitators and will conduct the program for families to experience how it feels to have dementia. This program will build sensitivity, empathy, understanding and awareness of dementia while helping to support families and caregivers.
