Cooperating foundations donates Naf 30.200,00 to Snoezelroom of White and Yellow Cross

The Board of the White and Yellow Cross Foundation received a cheque of Naf 30.200,00 for their so-called "snoezel" room in the new Sister Basilia Daycare from funding agency Cooperating Foundation (Samenwerkende Fondsen).

The 45 disabled clients of Basilia and some geriatric patients of the St. Martin’s Home can relax on a waterbed in this multi sensory room while looking at pictures, lava lamps and listening to soothing music. "Snoezelen" is a Dutch term for "dozing off" and "exploring" at the same time and has been clinically proven to help clients with Alzheimer’s disease or autism to relax, reduce the need for medication, and make better contact with other people. The former Sister Basilia Center Daycare already had a snoezelroom, but it badly needed to be updated and renewed.

Members of the Advisory Council of Cooperating Foundations received a tour last week to see the new furniture in the St. Martin’s Home that had been purchased with a previous donation from Cooperating Foundations in February and to experience a little bit of the "snoezel" function for themselves. The White and Yellow Cross will open their new Basilia Center Daycare coming Thursday at 5:00 pm and guests are invited to have a look for themselves.
