Elderly people who are confined to bed for long periods of time because of diagnosis or frailty often experience severe mood swings. They get tired of sitting or lying down, become bored with life and miss social contact with others.
Sensory stimulation is the activation of one or more of the senses such as taste, smell, vison, hearing, and touch. Sensory stimulation is a key component for improving the quality of life of residents living with dementia or Alzheimer's.
