Through the use of sensory lights, sounds and scents, care home residents with learning disabilities around North East Surrey have been enjoying an evening with a difference.
In partnership with volunteers Dick and Annette Emery, we have created a truly magical sensory garden experience, giving residents a wonderful experience to brighten up the dark evenings. There is no contact with residents making the sensory experience as covid safe as possible.
CEO of The Sunnybank Trust, Dorothy Watson commented: ‘We are very grateful to Annette and Dick. People with learning disabilities have been disproportionately affected and forgotten in this pandemic with many in lockdown since March. The Sensory Roadshow has been a fantastic way to reach those with complex needs and learning disabilities and to offer an evening of magic to reduce the high stress levels that many are experiencing’.
Those that have already had a visit from the Sensory Roadshow have described it as ‘fantastic’, ‘magical’ and ‘an evening to remember’.
If you would like to book a sensory experience for the residents of your care home this Winter, please get in touch: firstname.lastname@example.org.
The Sensory Roadshow is free of charge, however as a charity project, donations are gratefully received.
