Sensory Room

Our Sensory Room is a space within our home designed to enlighten the senses of all of our residents, and especially those living with conditions such as Dementia, Cerebral Palsy, Sensory Impairment, Visual Impairment, or Hearing Impairment. The room has been created to include and display multicoloured lights in a dark room, special sounds, and tactile objects. Sensory rooms are designed to help to develop communication skills, improve focus and provide a calming effect on individuals.

The Benefits of a Sensory Room

Elderly people often present ‘sensorial decline’, such as presbyopia, age-related hearing loss, and the loss of the sense of touch, which can hinder sensory stimulation. In addition to this, the gradual loss of mobility also affects sensory pathways which we believe are fundamental to wellbeing. The different elements that are found in a Sensory Room allow us to stimulate and provide input to the most impaired senses and offer an activity that is free from cognitive demands, allowing residents to feel relaxed, happy and entertained.

Sensory Room FAQs

A sensory room is a specially designed room that combines a number of sensory elements to help older people with learning difficulties, developmental disabilities, sensory impairments, or dementia in stimulating and engaging their senses. It serves as a versatile environment suitable for therapy, physical activity, and relaxation.

No two sensory rooms in a care home are the same, each is specifically created to meet a number of residents’ needs. The purpose of a sensory room is to offer a safe and relaxing environment to improve the quality of life of residents with certain health conditions. In a sensory room, you will often see different seating options, coloured lighting, a projector, soft furnishings and tactile objects.

Just a few of the activities that can be provided to support residents with dementia include finger painting, animal therapy, listening to music, hand massages, folding towels and much more. These activities aim to improve the mental and emotional well-being of residents living with dementia.
