LCS Foundation donates $10K to UNI Dementia Simulation House


The LCS Foundation has announced a $10,000 donation to support and increase programming at the Dementia Simulation House project at the University of Northern Iowa. The Dementia Simulation House offers participants a sensory experience to help them better understand what it’s like to live with the challenges of dementia. The project is a collaboration of the UNI gerontology program and the Northeast Iowa Area Agency on Aging. “We are so thankful for this donation to support and expand the programming we offer,” said Elaine Eshbaugh, professor of gerontology at UNI. “The majority of people living with dementia still live in their homes, so this simulation house provides a realistic setting for individuals and caregivers to experience and understand how they can help someone living with dementia.” The foundation’s donation will be used to add cameras for training and coaching. More than 375 participants have benefited from the Dementia Simulation House experience since it opened in February. The LCS Foundation was created in 2017 to support and invest in the senior living profession through charitable giving.
