Providing appropriate sensory stimulation for Alzheimer’s disease and other forms of dementia has been shown in studies to decrease agitation and restlessness, as well as improve sleep. These symptoms are very common in most forms of dementia, and certainly in people with Alzheimer’s, sensory stimulation translates into improved quality of life for everyone in a care partnership. More recent investigations indicate that appropriate sensory stimulation can actually repair the brain and make it grow. My mother along with many of the residents n aged care have dementia and would benefit from access to sensory toys, some of which are very expensive (the sensory muff pictured costs over $100. I would like to purchase a set of such sensory items for the Aged care facility so that they have a bank of such items to distribute to residents.
