Sensory afternoon for residents at Hillside

Residents of Hillside Care Home in Huyton, Merseyside, enjoyed an afternoon of sensory activities.

We started with water colour painting, which was lots of fun and allowed our inner artists to come out. We then touched and felt different textures, such as fur and grass. The various materials often remind the residents of a happy time in their life, and we love hearing their stories.

Our activities co-ordinator, Rebecca, said: “It was a great afternoon enjoyed by all, and next time we are planning to include activities that will involve a hearing experience too. It really helps the residents to relax and unwind.”

We then finished the afternoon with our favourite game – bingo!

Rebecca said: “We play bingo as and when we can, because we know how much the residents love it.”
