Enabling EDIE uses virtual reality technology (individual VR goggles) to enable participants to see the world through the eyes of a person living with dementia. This 3 hour interactive workshop will enhance your knowledge of dementia whilst exploring a supportive approach that enables Edie and his wife to live more confidently with dementia. The aim of the workshop is to better understand dementia from the perspective of the person living with dementia and to use a reablement approach to positively support people living with dementia. The benefit of Enabling EDIE is that participants can truly experience the disease from the person’s perspective(through a VR experience) and then undertake a very practical workshop to look at how they can make changes to better support Edie.
