Just a couple of days ago I wrote about the virtual dementia tour and the resulting blog post by attorney John Roberts. This "tour" is designed to replicate what a person with dimenished capacity may experience. Now, there is an ABC News video aobut this experience. You can find it here: http://abcnews.go.com/Nightline/video/virtual-dementia-tour-families-understanding-alzheimers-disease-11226182
I hope this helps you get a sense for what some of our elderly loved ones with some form of dementia may be experiencing.
