Our Tranquility Room offers sensory therapy, which is a type of therapy that was developed for people with cognitive and developmental disabilities. It is a therapeutic environment with a relaxed atmosphere that has several different levels of stimuli specifically chosen for people who have Alzheimer’s and other forms of dementia.
These rooms are safe, mood-enhancing places where people with dementia can experience interesting lighting effects, soothing aromas and colors, and textures and sounds. They provide people with dementia the opportunity to interact and engage with the world around them in a safe but stimulating way.
This type of environment has proven to increase trusting relationships with care givers, create better verbal and non-verbal communication, improve mood and behavior, and create feelings of higher self-esteem. Our patients deserve the newest technologies to help enhance their lives.
