The benefits of diffusing essential oils in nursing homes

Committed to a dynamic of non-drug approaches, Delphine and Thierry have been implementing various aromatherapy protocols since 2012. The objectives were to prevent bronchial and flu-like conditions for residents and nursing staff, to limit night-time wandering and restless behaviour during hygiene care, and to manage behavioural disorders related to Alzheimer’s disease.

They received the Foundation’s recognition award in 2017 for their implementation and assessment study.
