Virtual Reality Experiences

Included for all Conference Day Pass holders, is the opportunity to board both of our Virtual Experience buses, one for Dementia and the other for Autism.

These are available during both days of the 2025 NAEP Conference

Day One from 9.30am – 4.30pm & Day Two from 9.30am – 2.30pm

The virtual tour’s are medically and scientifically proven to be the closest that we can give a person with a healthy brain to have the experience of what Dementia or Autism might be like.

Equally scary, intimidating and a feeling of vulnerability. Both of these buses really are a must.

Virtual dementia experience

The life changing Virtual Dementia Tour is available throughout NAEP 2025, via a mobile dementia simulator bus.

This worldwide, scientifically and medically proven method of giving a person with a healthy brain and experience of what dementia might be like, allows delegates to enter the world of the person and understand which simple changes need to be made to their practice and environment to really improve lives of people with dementia.

Invented 25 years ago in America by Professor PK Beville and owned by Second Wind Dreams, Training 2 CARE are proud to be the UK partners and pioneers in this country. The Virtual Dementia Tour has now been proven during research produced by Ulster University to change practice within 95% of delegates, improve knowledge in 97% of delegates and improve outcomes for 100% of clients.

The Virtual Dementia Tour is taken by over 200,000 people per year in the UK and is the benchmark training that other providers strive to achieve. Already commissioned by over 18 NHS Trusts, 4 HSE Trusts, Care homes, Nursing Homes, Police, Prisons, Ambulance, Universities and Colleges, Councils, CCGs, CQC, Electric and Water Companies, Families and many more, the Virtual Dementia Tour has an impact that just cannot be matched or replicated.

Looking from the persons point of view and not basing practice on convenience really does save money, retain staff, build bridges between the family and care giver and increase positive outcomes. Therefore, if you are looking for the highest quality dementia training that really does change lives for all, then the Virtual Dementia Tour is a must for everyone.

Training 2 CAREs managing director, Glenn Knight comments:
“The Virtual Dementia Tour is quickly becoming the UKs leading training for people who come into direct or indirect contact with people with dementia. Whether you are a family member, shop, service or care provider having a new perspective on dementia really can make the difference. With 1 in 3 people expected to die of dementia related diseases and an aging population now really is the time to make the change and improve the lives of people with dementia.”

Autism Reality Experience

The Autism Reality Experience is an innovative, immersive and hands on training which has been developed to give non-autistic people an experience of the sensory processing difficulties faced by people on the autism spectrum. Invented by Training 2 CAREs Managing Director Glenn Knight and Autistic people, the Autism Reality Experience really is as true to life as currently possible and is changing the landscape of understanding Autism. Already commissioned by the NHS, Care Providers, Universities and Colleges, Prisons, Police, Ambulance, Schools, Families and many more the Autism Reality Experience continues to develop and give a greater empathy and understanding. Glenn Knight comments In 2020, the government are bringing into law that every nurse and person in social care must have autism awareness training and there is no better way of gaining this awareness than walking in their shoes, understanding the daily issues they face and recognising that these are often caused by our lack of knowledge from their point of view. In 2020, Training 2 CARE extended the A.R.E further by having a library of targeted videos environments that extends with partnerships between the prison service and the police service. This has continued to grow year on year so that they can provide targeted training that meets your personal needs.
