Sensory resources and physical activity improvement

Organisation : NHS Lothian, Murraypark Nursing Home, Edinburgh CHP
Grant Amount : £ 4,970

This project aims to increase the amount of sensory and physical activity resources available to our residents and activity leaders to enable them to improve our resident’s experiences indoors and outdoors. We aim to improve the 3 gardens by creating a sensory environment with visual, tactile, hearing and olfactory items that can be used all year around.

We intend to create different sensory experiences throughout the 3 houses that our residents can enjoy throughout the day, all year around.We would like to make these resources accessible to all our residents and staff, so we can enhance everyone’s sensory experiences in the houses, as well as create spaces that are comforting, appealing and engaging, to motivate and promote communication, relaxation and enjoyment for everyone.
