The origin, beginning and origin of Snoezelen!
Following various television broadcasts that I've seen over the past few years, and which suggested several times that Snoezelen originated at the Hartenberg Ede EEE I write about the real early days and the real origin of the Snoezelen.
After Ilse finished her MBO-AB & HBO-MWAS education she worked for more then 10 years as an occupational therapist in a home for elderly in Amsterdam (Bernardus).
During these years she introduced Snoezelen as an approach for elderly people with dementia. Many years of experimentation, learning, experience and delevelopments followed. At present she is seen as one the founders of the integration of Snoezelen into de 24-h daily care for elderly people with dementia.
