What they are finding is that certain essential oils have a positive effect on mood, behavior, and even on cognitive functioning and memory. Lavender is one of the most often studied of these oils, and one found to have the most desirable benefits. Read More about aromatherapy at our website
In addition, “People with Alzheimer’s disease don’t lose the capacity for human emotion or recognition of a caring touch,” says Ann Catlin, founder of the Center for Compassionate Touch. “What I've seen is that even a person in the very late, severe state of Alzheimer’s retains all these capacities.” There are several benefits massage therapy offers people with Alzheimer’s disease, including increased body awareness and alertness, as well as a reduction in the feelings of confusion and anxiety. “You also build reassurance and trust,” says Catlin, “and help calm agitation.”
