Dementia Friendly Toolkit: Role Play Simulations for Care and Community Settings

Developed with input from family caregivers, dementia friendly community groups and healthcare experts, this toolkit includes six multi-role simulations. Each reflects common challenges for people living with dementia, involving a bank, clinic, restaurant, grocery store or telephone, to help build communication and advocacy skills to respectfully engage people living with dementia.

This toolkit also includes facilitator and discussion guides, setting and equipment suggestions, additional information about each scenario and links to community resources. Short videos that can be used in conjunction with the toolkit can be found on the website of the Center for Aging Research and Education at the University of Wisconsin–Madison School of Nursing:

This toolkit was developed for use by varied audiences, including students and professionals in healthcare and allied fields, businesses, agencies, service providers and community groups. Pricing varies by organizational size. We define small organizations as including community groups and schools, and large organizations as including companies, healthcare organizations and university departments.
