Innovative Care at the Masonic Care Community
Our Snoezelen Room
You can expect expert care for the mind, body, and soul at the Masonic Care Community, but did you know we also provide innovative care that you might not expect? Our Snoezelen Room is different from other rooms in our Health Pavilion. Made possible by a donation from Andrew and Mary Hendry, it is a multi-sensory environment for seniors with memory loss, dementia or Alzheimer’s Disease.
The room is dark with the exception of colored lights coming from a giant bubble tube. Individuals can sit in a comfy chair and run their hands through a fiber-optic spray, or enjoy images projected on the wall. Additionally, the Snoezelen room is equipped with aromatherapy, soft music, tactile beads and other tools that stimulate sight, smell, hearing and touch.
Learn more about the Snoezelen Room and its benefits.
The Snoezelen Room is designed to soothe and calm residents by stimulating the senses and improving social interaction. Use of the room is typically an individual experience, although the room can accommodate up to three people. The equipment is adjustable so health-care providers can select the amount and type of stimuli to benefit each resident’s needs. There is also a portable cart that can be brought to resident rooms.
Our Snoezelen Room provides a non-directive, therapeutic environment.
There is no formal focus on therapeutic outcomes. The focus is to assist users to gain the maximum pleasure from the experience.
The Snoezelen Room:
- Can be staged to provide a multi-sensory experience or a single sensory focus
- Provides lighting, atmosphere, sounds and textures that can be adapted to specific needs
- Doesn’t rely on verbal communication and may provide stimulation to those seniors who may have difficulty with self-expression
- Is just one more way the Masonic Care Community is committed to consistently improving the quality of life for our residents
At the Masonic Care Community, we’re committed to finding innovative ways to care for seniors.
