From a report of the
Israel Ministry of Health
on examination of a geriatric institute conducted in November 2014
by the geriatric staff of the Central District:
"The use of In Their Shoes with each of the caregivers personally to increase sensitivity to the difficulties encountered by the residents is worthy of commendation."
"The Virtual Dementia Tour® is a new concept in bringing awareness to family members and staff working with the elderly who suffer from mental deterioration. This unique learning tool enables workers and relatives to get an inkling of how the individual feels and attempts to cope with his world even as rationalization and memory decline. I believe everyone who is in close contact with dementia will gain from this approach."
Coordinator of Institute for Studies in Aging
Former Director of Melabev
“When PK called to tell us that there was someone in Israel who was interested in bringing VDT to that country we were excited and agreed to become involved. After meeting Zissie we were impressed with her understanding and compassion, as well as her desire to change the status quo for eldercare in Israel. As she outlined her plans for In Their Shoes, her Israeli non-profit, we knew we wanted to be part of the process of 'changing the perception of aging' in Israel.”
