Voorbeeld Thematisch Snoezelen:    Het Peuterproject

Op afdeling ..... wonen dertig demente ouderen die allen in een vergevorderd stadium van dementie verkeren. Dit betekent dat alle bewoners in hun eigen wereld leven en dat wij (zorgverleners) proberen binnen die wereld contact te maken met de bewoners. Dit contact maken gebeurt voornamelijk door middel van verbaal en non-verbaal contact en allerlei zintuigprikkelende materialen. Tevens wordt er ingespeeld op alle basisbehoeften die een mens heeft.

A Garden as a 'Snoezelenroom'

For all of us a Garden is a fantastic place to be. Often the garden gives us silence, rest, the nice smel of flowers, the sounds of the bird. An excellent enviroment to bring in the Snoezelen approach. By creating or adapting a garden towards the theme of sensory stimulation you can create a beautiful external 'snoezelenroom'.

The European Championship 2004 Football in Portugal

Here you see an example of using an actual theme into Snoezelen activities.

For all his live our resident Mr.L is a fan of football (soccer). Especially when the national Dutch team was playing in international competitions. This year we used that theme to approach Mr.L in a different an suprising way. We created a scorelist of the results of the different matches and we transformed some parts of the livingroom into the orange colours of the national Dutch team.

Why this activity?

For elderly people babies create a special emotion. It stimulates memories and feelings from past times. It is an excellent method to make contact with your clients and to find an entrance into their experiences.
