Silverado Scottsdale Memory Care assisted living home hosts Virtual Dementia Tour events every month across the Valley, following a program created by non-profit Second Wind Dreams. Participants receive glasses that reduce vision, modified gels that provide a "pins and needles" sensation in their shoes and headphones that produce a white-noise effect. They are then taken into a demo room and instructed to carry out five tasks, like putting on a sweater and writing a letter, in five minutes.
