Sensory Equipment for our Dementia Unit

The residents living in our Dementia Unit spend a lot of time looking up. We would like to provide a relaxing yet stimulating visual effect as they are looking at the ceiling. We have looked into this and found that sensory equipment has been shown to help with:

  • Relaxation and mood improvement
  • Increases self-esteem and wellbeing
  • Positive feelings and improved mood
  • Increased levels of concentration and ability to focus
  • Improvement in cognitive symptoms
  • Increased concentration and alertness
  • More interactions with friends and family

We are hoping to provide a projector and other visual equipment to create a more interesting and welcoming environment for our residents. We can’t do this by ourselves. You can help us by donating to our Sensory Equipment for the Dementia Unit – JustGiving campaign.
