This Scentscape has been designed to stimulate everyday memories to help support the experience of being in the home. The scents of baby powder, shoe polish and a freshly baked fruitcake combine with beautifully crafted sounds reminiscent of a busy and happy household to help someone relax and feel…At Home!
How It Works
Active Minds noticed that later into somebody’s journey with dementia, certain activities, which may have been both important to a routine and comforting, become less accessible.
Scentscapes were designed to offer somebody both sound and scents of various popular experiences. Our research showed these to be powerful tools to help transport people to a time or place, stimulating memories and conversation and helping to access memories that would otherwise have been difficult to reach.
Each Scentscape comes with three scents, three smelling jars and a 30-minute CD with specific sounds of a particular theme. Each CD is split into three different sections, which relate to the three individual scents. A great product to use in a group or one to one.
