Dementia Research Aromatherapy raises motivation in dementia patients

Further evidence was reported in the Australian Journal of Holistic Nursing indicating that Aromatherapy can be very helpful in the care of patients suffering from dementia.

 

A clinical trial as to the effectiveness of aromatherapy on motivational behavior in a dementia care setting was undertaken. Patients were monitored over a period of two months, and then for a further two months during which they received aromatherapy treatments.

 

Reviewing the results, the researchers found that the patients showed a significant improvement in motivational behavior during the period of aromatherapy treatment. The report confirms earlier research indicating that aromatherapy has a beneficial, therapeutic role to play in the care of dementia patients.
