Open House for Snoezelen Room
Milestone Senior Living Suites 5510 Renee Drive Eau Claire WI 54703
Snoezelen Therapy Room
On May 27, 2015 at 2pm Milestone Senior Living Suites will celebrate it’s newest edition to our Holistic Approach to Aging Seniors who may have Alzheimer’s or other dementias. The Snoezelen therapy room is located at 5510 Renee Drive Eau Claire WI 54703 at the Milestone Senior Living campus. Snoezelen therapy was first used in the Netherlands for autistic children. Since then the Snoezelen therapy was used with people who have Alzheimer’s or other dementias successfully either in calming or stimulating senses.
"I am so excited about this room, it offers so many different possibilities—for some it can be a low-stimulation environment offering peace and tranquility needed if overly anxious, while others may receive a variety of activities to stimulate their senses” said Community Director/LPN Kelly Rohwedder. Milestone Senior Living has always used a variety of homeopathic therapies, along with the addition of this room, we can offer even more non medication interventions to every day anxieties and depression.
"We are the first in the area to research and embrace this new way of treating people with anxiety," said Kelly Rohwedder LPN/Community Director "Seeing the animals and birds that are hiding in the mural, feeling the objects hidden in the colored rice, smelling the lavender throughout the room or hearing the soft sounds of nature is all so calming and yet so stimulating, it has decreased our need for anti-anxiety medications, that have so many side effects on the elderly.”
Milestone Senior Living Apartments and Suites are located at 5510 and 5512 Renee Drive in Eau Claire, and specializes in the senior and memory care. For more information about the Milestone, visit their website at www.MileStoneSeniorLiving.com
