Abstract
Main philosophy and history of Snoezelen/Multi-Sensory Environment. Snoezelen/Multi-Sensory Environment in several research studies has shown the positive effectiveness of the method with patients who have dementia. The practice of Snoezelen in the care for people with dementia and some results of scientific research on the effects of Snoezelen. The integration of the concept of Snoezelen/Multi-Sensory Environment in the daily care of nursing homes. From recent study, Snoezelen/ Multi-Sensory Environment has proven to be effective in decreasing the amount of disruptive and aggressive behaviors among individuals with Alzheimer’s disease. With a decrease in such disruptive behaviors and a reduction of medications, the caregivers will be more able to appropriately care for their loved ones at home and within the community. In conclusion these results point out that Snoezelen/Multi-Sensory Environment has also positive effects on the quality or working life of staff members in psychogeriatric care.
