Jayden opens new sensory room

The multi-sensory room (‘snoezelruimte’), especially designed for relaxation or (sensory) stimulation of children, was festively opened on January 7. Jayden cut the ribbon and immediately tried the bubble unit and magic globe, saying ‘Wow!’

The multi-sensory room has a bubble unit, waterbed, projector, fiber glow and a magic globe. Children can also use different 'do walls' and types of snoozing materials, such as soft discs and balls. If a child cannot go to the room, there is also a sensory cart available on the wards and on the outpatient wards/day treatment.

The word ‘snoezelen’ is a contraction of the words doezelen (peaceful atmosphere) and snuffling (exploring). The ‘snoezel’ multi-sensory room is designed for children and adolescents undergoing treatment to relax or to stimulate their senses. ‘Snoezelen’ stands for forms of sound, light, smell and touch. The aim is relaxation, the promotion of pleasant feelings or the reduction of unpleasant feelings such as fear, stress or anger.

The room is made possible by sponsors. Anke de Kort and Simone Kuipers, medical pedagogical care providers: 'Many thanks to our sponsors. Because of them this room could be realized. We are very happy with it. Jayden’s reaction speaks volumes and will apply to more children: 'Wow!’, he almost didn’t stop with saying ‘Wow’.’
