People with disease of Alzheimer lose their cognitive functions more and more, like loss of memory but also their ability to communicate. This causes depressions and frustrations, and the ‘standard’ health environment, that is under high pressure as it is, can’t respond to this very well. So we have to search for alternatives for experience and communication.
What people with the disease of Alzheimer can do is see, hear, feel and experience – with their senses of the moment. The experience of their surroundings and the effects of this on the emotional life of people is therefore of decisive significance. People with the disease of Alzheimer interact on a very instinctive and emotional level with their surroundings, and the sensory perception is their guide. This ‘raw’ book ‘Insight Series 5’ (read the book on issuu) explores possibilities to create a haptic environment in the ‘semi-public space’, in for instance, the corridor space of a geriatric institution.
