Sensory Room

Our Sensory Room is a room in our home designed to enlighten the senses of those who may be living with conditions such as Dementia, Cerebral Palsy, Sensory Impairment, Visual Impairment or Hearing Impairment. The room consists of multicoloured lights in a dark room, special sounds and soft play objects. It can help to develop communication skills, improve focus and provide a calming effect on individuals.

What is a Sensory Room?

The sensory room in our facility is meticulously crafted to provide gentle stimulation for all five senses: sight, sound, touch, smell, and even taste. Tailored to meet the unique needs of each individual, the room offers a variety of sensory experiences that can be both calming and energising.

For residents living with dementia, the familiar scents, sounds, and tactile objects found in the sensory room can trigger powerful memories from the past. These moments of reminiscence often bring a sense of comfort and happiness, alleviating confusion and reinforcing a strong sense of identity.

The Benefits of a Sensory Room

The Sensory Room at our facility was purposefully designed to cater to a wide range of residents. Individuals with sensory impairments, cerebral palsy, or dementia stand to gain significant benefits from utilising this specialised space. Featuring soft objects, multicoloured lighting, and soothing sounds, the room is carefully crafted to enhance communication skills, foster improved focus, and evoke a sense of tranquillity among users. For those who may struggle to engage socially in conventional settings, the sensory room offers a unique opportunity to elicit emotions and forge connections with others in ways they may not typically experience.
