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.

The effect on Mr.L was amazing; for 2 weeks he was smiling and talking about his passion football. We could reach him as never before, we were able to have conversations with him as we could never do before. And above all, for 3 weeks Mr.L was the most happiest man on the house.
