Thank you to River House Adult Day Center, located in Cos Cob, CT for inviting me to share the Essential Awakenings® Smell Therapy Session with their clientele! Their favorite smell prompts have been the smell of apples (baking apple pies, picking apples with their family in the fall).

"Hi Ruth, Thanks for reaching out, roughly 3 months ago I fully lost taste and smell. My smell and taste slightly improved a week later but weeks later I didn’t see much of an improvement. Since I have been doing smell training it has helped me out a LOT. I can now almost taste normally but my smell isn’t fully there yet, I am hopeful that I will fully regain my senses soon though. But overall I really feel the smell training has helped me out. Thanks again for reaching out. You can use my statement as proof that smell training really does help. I also recommend a few other people to purchase your smell kit. Thank you very much, I was worried that I would forever lose my senses but after utilizing the smell training it has helped me a lot."

"I bought the Essential Awakenings® Kit as a Christmas gift for my grandfather with Alzheimer's. It ended up being a gift for the whole family! The scents are very distinguishable and the conversation cards that came with the kit helped us to guide the discussion. Thank you Ruth for going above and beyond making sure that I had the gift in time for Christmas! It was true joy!"

Essential Awakenings® with Ruth is a fun and important experience for residents at any facility. The scents that Ruth creates elicit memories for our residents, and inspire socialization through conversation about what scents appeal to which people... I am honored to incorporate Essential Awakenings into our programming; it adds so much to the sensory experience we hope to offer those in their last stage of life.
