An estimated 50 million people worldwide live with dementia or Alzheimers Disease. A large part of caring for them falls upon family members.

An innovative program at the UT Health School of Nursing enables caregivers to experience how it feels to have dementia. The proram is called the Virtual Dementia Tour.

On the next Sci Tech Now, we go to the School of Nursing at UT Health San Antonio to take you inside the mind and body of a person living with dementia.

Watch this episode of SciTech Now airing Thursday, Nov. 9 at 7:30 p.m. on KLRN.
