At recent resident and relative meetings, we have been discussing new new activity ideas for our residents here at Brookfield .

Sensory activities

We thought it would be a great idea to create some dementia fiddle cushions, one of our family members kindly offered to help with these. She made some knitted squares  and added sensory objects such as buttons, ribbons and bows.

We are really confident about the benefits these cushions will have for residents. Often these are used to help comfort residents that are agitated or distressed, giving our residents with dementia a real focus and provide hours of sensory fun.
