Multi sensory room

Increases Communication & Memory Through Person-centered Care

Our multi-sensory room (MSR) is a specially designed room that provides gentle stimulation of sight, sound, touch, smell, and movement in a controlled way to create a soothing environment. Multi-Sensory Environments (MSE) are used to boost feelings of comfort and well-being, relieve stress and pain, and maximize a person’s potential to focus, all of which help improve communication and memory. We also have a mobile sensory cart for visiting residents unable to experience the room.
