Why Lisa loves the sensory room at Rosyth

Lisa using the fibre optic lights in Rosyth activity and skills group sensory roomHello my name is Lisa and I attend Rosyth activity and skills group five days a week.

I enjoy spending time in the sensory room as it is nice and relaxing when all the therapy lights are on.

There is a lovely rocker chair and a bean bag I can relax in while all the images from the projector reflect onto the wall (there are different discs with different images on them so we can change them and have a bit of variety).

Some have animals on them and some have flowers.

Now that new equipment is available within the service I am able to get out of my wheelchair more frequently and spend time in the sensory room without feeling uncomfortable.

I really enjoy when all the therapy lights are on as this helps me feel relaxed.

I like to use the new fibre optic softy bundle. I find this very relaxing especially when there's a talking book on for me to listen to.

I use the aromatherapy board with therapy oils to help me with relaxation. The aromas can sometimes make me so relaxed that I just want to drift off to sleep, which is nice.

I love being able to get out of my chair to chill out.

I have a holistic massage on my legs, which helps with the tightness in my legs caused by water retention.

The sensory room gives me a great opportunity to relax while attending the day service and makes my time there so much better.
