Experiencing Alzheimer’s

Experiencing Alzheimer's

The Virtual Dementia Tour offered people an opportunity to experience what it would be like to live with Alzheimer’s disease. The tour was presented by the East Arkansas Area Agency on Aging and was held at the Allied Health Building on the campus of East Arkansas Community College.
