Caption: Reportage in a snoezelen room in Liege. Mony, 85, who has Alzheimer's disease, moves around in this multi-sensory environment, which is both soothing and stimulating, with Marc Thiry, a physiotherapist specialising in psychomotor education. Professor Thiry has been following Mony since her disease was diagnosed 5 years ago. By stimulating the senses, these rooms allow people with Alzheimer's, who, despite their disease, maintain a sensorial memory, to lower their anxiety levels. These rooms are as beneficial to the patients as to the medical staff, allowing a privileged relationship to be established between the two, and setting up means of communication other than speech. Mony and Marc Thiry use a vibrating cushion.
