Residents within the Nursing Home love spending time in our multi-sensory room. It can be staged to provide a multi-sensory experience or single sensory focus simply by adapting the lighting, atmosphere and sounds to the specific needs of the residents. Whether we are running therapeutic or more educational based activities all residents are keen to join in.
One of our favourite activities is the ocean theme work, where we utilise the various pieces of stimulating equipment to create an immersive underwater environment. We watch the images of the deep sea divers, submarines and sea creatures being projected onto the walls, programme the light column and fibre optics to display the colours blue and yellow and listen to the audio cd “Ocean Sounds”.
These activities are also a great aid to reminiscence and we usually end up chatting about past holidays/day trips to the beach. Have a look at our photogrpahs below.
