Sensory Equipment For Dementia Sufferers
Dementia is used to describe a set of symptoms that can include memory loss, difficulty thinking or problem solving and sometimes language skills. Sometimes it may also begin to affect the way a person behaves or their mood. This condition is one which starts out with small scale problems, but can deteriorate quickly to make a huge impact on the sufferer’s daily life.
Dementia is often caused by a disease such as Alzheimer’s, or if the sufferer has had a series of strokes. Alzheimer’s accounts for a large proportion of dementia, however it is not the route of all dementia. How symptoms of dementia present themselves varies from person to person – it is down to which area of the brain is damaged and what disease causes the dementia.
Our multisensory rooms at Experia transcend any age barriers. Seniors have shown profound changes in mood, cognition and overall well-being when regularly visiting our rooms. Dementia can be a difficult diagnosis to handle or understand and can show itself with anger, moodiness or forgetfulness. Yet, once exposed to our calming lights, sounds and aromas, an individual with dementia can relax and engage and once again have control over their environment and even themselves. Setting up a sensory room in your assisted living, retirement facility, or nursing home will not only upgrade your facility, but may improve the quality of life for your residents.
