SENSORY AFTERNOON AT WILLETT HOUSE

31 May 2018

Earlier this month, residents at Willett House ventured out into the garden to make the most of the sunny weather and enjoy a sensory-based activity session.

Residents were given a variety of leaves and flowers of different colours and shapes to look at, smell and touch. Sensory stimulation is a popular activity for those living with dementia as it helps to evoke emotional reactions and to be in touch with the immediate environment and reminisce memories of the past. One resident recalled cooking with thyme as she took in the scent of the fresh herb.

To finish the afternoon, residents were joined by loved ones and relatives to enjoy gentle sound and movement therapy.
