Second Wind Dreams’ Virtual Dementia Tour Gets Funding For Tennessee Nursing Homes

  • Tuesday, August 18, 2020

In January, the Tennessee Department of Health announced that Second Wind Dreams had been approved by the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services to use Civil Money Penalty funding in 100 Tennessee skilled nursing homes. The two-year project began assisting nursing home staff to improve care for dementia residents by providing hands-on, experiential training using the patented Virtual Dementia Tour. However, due to COVID the in-person training could not be continued. 
 
Second Wind Dreams announces this experiential training program is now available online. Sarah Ekart, the chief programs officer at Second Wind Dreams, is excited about the prospect of the free, virtual training saying, “While our initial plans for this grant were disrupted, we are excited to introduce our innovative, robust training to improve empathic person-centered care for nursing home residents with dementia across Tennessee.”
 
"Second Wind Dreams remains committed to our goal of working with 100 skilled nursing homes in Tennessee," officials said.

Skilled nursing homes in Tennessee are invited to apply for this free, online training program by emailing angela@secondwind.org.
