Hi, I treated a woman with Dementia for eight years right until she passed away. If the client is accepting aromatherapy massage is a wonderful way to help even for half an hour calm and relieve tension. Just in the same way anyone benefits from hands on massage so do people with dementia. Keep up the good work. Andrea Swithenbank
