When family members walk into your lobby, you have 4.3 seconds to make an impression. Hopefully it’s a good one.
On average, humans take a breath every 4.3 seconds - about 20,000 times a day - and that’s all it takes to instantly smell and form an unsolicited option. The brain’s limbic system matches the scent to a corresponding emotion and quickly makes an association -- positive or negative.
“So many places I visited had the ‘nursing home smell’ of urine, body odor, and so on. I did not want Birdie to have to live in that atmosphere; neither did I want to visit her in a place like that.”
- Where Did She Go? Experiences of An Alzheimer’s Caregiver, by Donald A. Noffsinger. excerpt from chapter 8, page 49

Memories are precious. Especially for those who are struggling to retain them.
Of the five senses, Smell has the strongest and most direct connection to memory... especially childhood memories. A study conducted by Stockholm University revealed that smells have the tendency to take someone further back in time than verbal or visual memory cues. When introduced to a smell memory cue, participants in the study, whose average age was 75, most frequently recalled memories from early childhood. Alzheimer’s disease and other dementias typically erode short term memory functions before it affects the ability to recall events from one’s distant past, which makes smell a useful means of triggering those memories still intact. Many healthcare organizations are using aroma in creative ways to enhance their care services.
Did you know... 80% Percent of Taste is based on the Sense of Smell? Taste and smell are intimately connected to each other and to the central workings of the brain.
The Aroma of food plays a huge role, with some researchers claiming it accounts for a majority of how we perceive flavor. Furthermore, appealing fragrances such as vanilla, cinnamon and chocolate whet the appetite and stir a desire to eat. There’s nothing like the smell of fresh baked cookies!
Aromatherapy has been proven to promote relaxation and reduce stress.
Individuals with healthcare needs (especially Alzheimer’s and Dementia) frequently suffer from anxiety, agitation and troubled sleep. Certain fragrances such as Lavender, Chamomile and Rose have been shown to have a calming, relaxing effect. No wonder they’re so popular!
Caring for seniors is both rewarding and demanding.
The current labor shortage in senior living contributes to a high turnover in staffing and we all know, it’s hard to find good help. Pleasing aromas have been shown to increase an employee’s alertness, accuracy and job satisfaction. Scent can have a positive impact on retaining your best staff members.
When people are asked...”What does a Senior Care facility smell like?” The answers are usually NOT very favorable. There’s a reason for that.
Malodor can simply be part of the job. Cleansing agents, aerosol disinfectants and chemical sprays are necessary, but hardly feel like home -- they feel institutional. Using an Aroma System to create the smell of baked apple pie, fresh linens, or White Tea creates a warm, inviting feeling for residents and family. It makes everyone feel more at home.
