Into D’mentia has developed a dementia simulator allowing people without dementia to experience how it feels to live with dementia. This simulator is specifically designed so that healthy people can experience what it feels like to be confused, insecure, disoriented and so on, which is precisely how people with dementia feel every day. Knowing how it feels to have dementia gives you a better understanding of the illness, it improves your relationship and it reduces the burden of caregiving. Into D’mentia is unique: this effective training method is only used in the Netherlands. In 2012, we won the first Social Innovation Award. After five years, we would love to demonstrate the dementia simulator again.
