Abstract (Summary)

The purpose of this project is to write a grant for the expansion of the Sensory Spa program to the frail elderly participants at the Acacia Adult Day Health Center, as well as the maintenance of the existing program for those participants with mild to severe dementia. The prevalence of dementia will continue to grow as more individuals are growing into older age. Review of research showed the effectiveness of Snoezelen, also called Sensory Spa to help decreased disruptive behaviors in individuals with dementia, particularly during disruptive periods such as sundowning. The expansion of the program to the frail elderly participants would be to help maintain their cognitive functioning. This grant is designed to be submitted to the Archstone Foundation for funding consideration. The actual submission or funding of this grant proposal was not a requirement for completion of this project.
