Facility to host virtual dementia tour


Shepherd of the Valley, 335 W. Western Reserve Road, will host a free virtual dementia tour experience from 4 to 7 p.m. Thursday for community members interested in learning more about dementia. The tour can benefit caregivers and families whose loved ones suffer from symptoms of impaired memory, communication and thinking.

It is designed to help people identify with and understand the behaviors and needs of those afflicted by dementia. Trained facilitators will guide participants through common, everyday tasks and exercises, so they can experience the physical and mental challenges faced by those with dementia.

This experience can lead to enhanced, person-centered care and more positive interactions. Reservations are encouraged by calling 330-726-7110, ext. 0. Refreshments will be served. For information, contact Danielle Procopio at 330-774-3522 or dprocopio@shepherdofthevalley.com.
