Second Wind Dreams® Introduces Community Edition Of Virtual Dementia Tour®

Newest Edition Helps Communities and Businesses Relate to 5.3 Million Americans with Alzheimer's Disease

ATLANTA, Jan. 24, 2013 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- With a 30 percent increase in the number of Americans with Alzheimer's expected by 2025, communities and businesses need access today to trainings that will help them understand and anticipate the challenges facing those with dementia. Second Wind Dreams®, the nonprofit changing the perception of aging, proudly introduces the next step in dementia care resources now designed exclusively for communities and businesses, The Virtual Dementia Tour® — Community Edition.

Scheduled for release in Atlanta on February 1, 2013 at a VDT® Consortium conducted by Second Wind Dreams®, VDT® — Community Edition builds on the popular VDT® — Group and VDT® — Family/Individual editions, which have been experienced by more than 500,000 people in 14 countries and are available in four languages.

"More than 5 million Americans have Alzheimer's and that number is expected to increase dramatically as Baby Boomers continue to age," said P.K. Beville, M.S., founder and CEO of Second Wind Dreams®, who originated the first edition of the VDT® almost 16 years ago. "When dementia strikes, it strikes the whole community, not just the individual."

"Society is no longer experiencing the effects of dementia only in senior care facilities and nursing homes, but now we are experiencing Alzheimer's, Picks, Myocardial Brain Infarction and alcohol related impairments, all a subset of dementia, in our workplaces, community based organizations, religious organizations, and even retail businesses," continued Beville. "In the U.S., a major crisis is going to be the shortage of geriatric specialists able to provide care for the growing number of people affected by this disease. It is vital that lay professionals receive dementia education so they know how to relate to people with Alzheimer's and can play an active role in helping America prepare for this healthcare crisis."
