Squeeze the Day: Care Home Explores Soothing Sensory Enrichment

Residents at Upton Bay Care Home, Poole, have been exploring the tranquil delights of sensory stimulation at their morning Ladies Club.

Hosted by Upton By volunteer, Chrissy Bradley, the ladies benefited from relaxing hand massages to unwind after a busy week. Residents chose from a selectin of oils and lotions, experimenting with different textures and scents, from quintessential lavender to exotic mango.

To accompany, freshly sliced fruits filled the air with sweet citrusy scents.

The club topped off the morning with a ‘mocktail’ tasting, pairing together fruity flavours and fizz to round off the sensory excitement.
