Snoezelen is a therapeutic environment created for the express purpose of delivering high levels of stimuli in people with dementia. A private room displays optical illusions with combined lighting effects, aromas, colors, textures and sounds to stimulate a persons visual, olfactory and auditory systems. Sensory therapy has helped to increase awareness and has proven effective in improving moods for those living with dementia.
