Having a loved one that suffers from dementia or Alzherimer's can be devastataing. Providing care for them can be challenging and difficult. Therefore, anything that can improve the quality of life for the patient and caregiver is worthwhile. It has been proven that the use of sensory stimulation, as opposed to the use of restraints or sedation, greatly reduces behavior problems, decreases restlessness, and improves sleep. The Skil-Care Sensory Stimulation Gel Pad increases visual and tactile stimulation, but the other five senses can be heightened as well. Skilcare and Mountainside provide other products associated with sensory stimulation.
