Can Aroma Activities Help Alzheimer's Patients?

Aromatherapy for Alzheimer's Patients

Alzheimer's and dementia affect short-term memory, but many times long-term memory is intact.

"What's gone is gone, you use it or you lose it." says Scott Greenberg, President of ComForcare Palm Beach. "We try to keep our clients engaged, stimulated, active and not focused on the things that are so difficult and frustrating for them."

Can the smell of crayola crayons remind you of your childhood? Can the scent of pine bring back memories of Christmas? "Anything we can do to bring back fond memories of days gone by often helps the family member dealing with Alzheimer's and dementia." Professional caregivers are trained on ways to use aroma activities to keep a client stimulated and engaged.
