The effect of snoezelen on people with dementia and Alzheimer's
What is snoezelen?
The word snoezelen is a combination of the words sniffing and feathering in Dutch. Sniffing is exploring your environment and feathering is a safe situation in which peace and relaxation prevail. You can snoezel individually but also in groups. The latter often in a cuddle room. Snoezelen is the active stimulation of your senses: with for example perfumes, flowers, lighting effects, music and other sounds, a relaxing situation is created. People with dementia and Alzheimer's have an above-average need for rest and safety in their environment.
