Session 55 | Multi-Sensory Stimulation Rooms for Persons with Dementia: Design-on-a-Dime
Day: Thursday, July 29 Time: 9:00 to 11:00 a.m. Type/Topic: Clinical/Care Practices
In this session, participants will learn how sensory stimulation impacts the person living with dementia. Using best practice principals, this session will offer a “design on a dime” approach to a sensory room and demonstrate to providers how to set up a room or space of their own so they can further impact the quality of life of persons with dementia without relying on pharmacology.
