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 olfactory and auditory systems. Sensory therapy has helped helped to increase awareness and has proven effective in improving moods for those diagnosed with dementia.
