Oasis Senior Advisors proudly partners with Second Wind Dreams to offer the Virtual Dementia Tour in local communities across the country. If you are interested in holding a tour in your area, please contact your local Oasis senior advisor, and we can help coordinate the event.
The dementia tour provides valuable information for individuals and their family members who may be dealing with the consequences of dementia. Understanding its effects, both physical and otherwise, can help you feel more prepared. You learn more about what dementia does, the different types of dementia, what to expect when your family member suffers from the disease, and how you and your family can cope with the effects of dementia.
