Below I have provided you with some feedback from my colleagues, and hope this proves useful.
- This is a fantastic training course which brings to life just how it feels to be living with dementia. I don’t think I fully appreciated all the different ways it can affect you, and it really opened my eyes up to how difficult it must be to live with dementia. The experience had a real impact on me, and will be very beneficial to the work I do, fundraising to help people living with dementia and their carers.
- This tour was truly insightful, and definitely helped me to develop a better understanding of some of the symptoms and experiences for individuals living with dementia. As a fundraiser, that has given me a greater understanding of the people I aim to support. At the beginning, I felt a little uneasy as it didn’t feel like a professional training session with mannequins placed around the room.
- I thought the tour was very effective and really gave a good sense of what it could feel like to have dementia. Very insightful. I would also say, perhaps it didn’t feel like a very professional operation, the waiting room full of stuff/mannequins.
- I found the tour very engaging and insightful. Certainly not a pleasant experience but a very valuable one which will stay with me for a long time! I would recommend it to everyone, regardless of their experience (or lack of) so far of dementia.
