Sensory stimulation provides many positive benefits to those with cognitive challenges including Alzheimer’s and other forms of dementia.

Our  Program

Through our  program, we perform ongoing assessments of each individual in our care to provide the appropriate daily sensory stimulation activities from the time he/she wakes up to bedtime.

We train our staff to create an environment that offers positive opportunities for stimulation of all the senses (smell, touch, taste, hearing, sight) as well as specific activities that target each of the senses.

How does the  program help?

The benefits of sensory stimulation include:

  • Heightened socialization
  • Increased concentration
  • Improved mood
  • Elevated self-esteem
  • Reduced anxiety and depression

Who Can Participate?

Our  Program is a productive activity component to those in all stages of Alzheimer’s disease, other forms of dementia, and cognitive impairments including brain injuries. It can trigger memories and responses from afflicted individuals, even when they no longer speak.

What is the  program?

 offers continuous sense stimulation as well as targeted activities to those with cognitive challenges. The goal is to bring cheer and comfort as well as other benefits. Ongoing individual care assessment is an essential part of the  program.
