How the Snoezelen Room Works
Snoezelen, or a controlled multisensory environment, is a memory care therapy which originated in the Netherlands during the 1970s. This therapy has been shown to be beneficial for those with Alzheimer’s, dementia and autism. Sensory rooms can also ease some of the “sun-downing” behaviors associated with Alzheimer’s and dementia.
Restless & Agitated Residents
Residents with dementia or memory loss often have agitated or restless behaviors. It's not uncommon to find them picking at their skin, clothes, or furniture because they simply need some sort of stimulation to excite their minds enough to focus. It aims their initiative to sooth their anxious feelings.
Lethargic & Low-Energy Residents
Other dementia and memory loss patients display lethargic behaviors, having low energy and low motivation. These residents need different settings in our snoezelen room. The same senses are used to encourage different behaviors toward the same end: balance.
