Multi-Sensory Suite at Anchin Memory Care

Stimulation of the senses can help people with Alzheimer’s disease and other dementia-related diseases reconnect with their surroundings. At Aviva, we proudly offer internationally renowned Snoezelen therapy, recognized to promote relaxation, stimulation and cognitive development.

Our Snoezelen Multi-Sensory Environment® consists of a private, comfortable room that displays optical illusions with combined lighting effects, aromas, colors, textures and sounds to initiate sensory stimulations in the brain.

Studies have shown that a safe, mood-enhancing environment, like Aviva’s Multi-Sensory Suite, can reduce the need for medication for some residents and can ease some of the “sundowning” behaviors associated with dementia-related diseases.

Benefits of Multi-Sensory Therapy

  • Stimulates lethargic residents
  • Calms and soothes irritated residents
  • Provides a non-language outlet
  • Distracts residents from acute pains
  • Increases resident awareness

At Anchin Memory Care, we strive to provide an innovative and engaging environment, along with the freedom to enjoy amazing new experiences and cherish old memories.
