GCPL to Host Virtual Dementia Tour at Suwanee Branch on September 14

Gwinnett County Public Library has partnered with Second Wind Dreams, WSB-TV’s Family 2 Family project, and the Georgia Public Library Service to host the Virtual Dementia Tour® at the Suwanee Branch on September 14 from 10 am to noon.

One of five metro Atlanta library systems selected to host the tour, GCPL will help honor Second Wind Dreams’ 20th anniversary of outreach dedicated to the elder population and improved education for Georgians who provide care for seniors.

Guests will get a glimpse into the window of dementia through hands-on, individualized, experiential learning. It is a powerful way to connect society to a forgotten truth about seniors: the truth that age does not erase hopes and dreams.

The insight provided by the Virtual Dementia Tour will alter perspectives and change the way people approach caregiving. The Virtual Dementia Tour has also been lauded as a game changer in helping understand what person-centered contact actually entails.

The program is free and open to the public but registration is required. Guests can reserve a time at www.iswdd.org.

The Suwanee Branch is located at 361 Main Street in Suwanee.
