The Sjælsø care centre provides day care for home-based patients with dementia. They tested the rocking chair.
”Real life stories: Small lady badly affected by Parkinson and Alzheimer dementia. She is unable to find calm and feels best when she keeps moving. Her spouse never gets any peace for everyday jobs or proper sleep. She is very fidgety and wakes the other day guests when they nap after lunch. Since the Wellness chair has come into our lives, this lady has become much calmer and is able to do simple tasks without any problems.”
Next happy story:
who suffers from hallucinations and consequently upset about it are naturally very distressed. Were offered to rest in the chaor and after an hour of peaceful sleep, this lady is happy and is able to take our bus back home.
Common to all these experiences is that the partners and spouses can see the effect when the residents return home in the afternoon. Their partner is calmer, so we believe that this chair meets all our needs for a complete chair.”
