Rekindle is a project that focuses on using the sense of smell to rekindle relationships lost between families and patients with Dementia. As the population continues to age, the number of Canadians living with dementia is rising tremendously. As a result, patients are moving away from their homes to live in long-term care centres, receiving less family visits and even more frustration. Visits, on the part of the patients’ families, become a burden rather than a desire. Rekindle uses smells to evoke the patient’s childhood memories, so their family gets time to “reminiscent”. Share special moments, spend quality time and have fun together.
