NEW SENSORY ROOMS A SENSATION

Residents are delighted with the new Sensory Room make-overs rolling out across the Wessex Care homes in Salisbury. Over the last few months, rooms at several of the group’s homes have been creatively decorated to enhance the wellbeing of their occupants.
The innovative programme uses a combination of special lighting, music and carefully selected objects in residents’ rooms, such as wind chimes and even colourful fish tanks, to help stimulate senses and lift spirits.
Kelly, Welfare Assistant at Kimberly House, says, “A quarter of the rooms here have now been included in the scheme and we are really excited that the idea will be continued in the new Kimberly West Care Centre opening in May.”

Residents at Little Manor and Holmwood have also benefitted from the cheerful additions and they and their families have been thrilled with the results which have been particularly striking for those who are bedbound, or who just enjoy spending time in their rooms. Wessex Care now plans to extend the programme throughout its homes and new Care Centre.
Kelly added, “Our guests love the changes and are fascinated by the colours of the objects placed in their rooms. The scheme has been a real conversation point.”
