Today, on “Giving Tuesday” we would like to send a special thank you to the Fort Sanders Foundation for their generous donation that helped us implement a new sensory room for our senior behavioral patients at Parkwest. The purpose of this room is to immerse patients in an environment that promotes sensory stimulation, relaxation, quiet, calmness, and soothing. This experience also includes aromatherapy, music therapy, visually calming lights and tactile stimulation.This type of experience has shown positive outcomes in helping reduce patients’ anxiety and overall stress levels, all while encouraging socialization and positive peer interactions during their hospital stay.
