Residents enjoy the great weather outdoors
The sun is shining which means our residents are able to explore the newly revamped sensory garden at the main campus.
A sensory garden is a garden environment that is designed with the purpose of stimulating the senses. This happens with the addition of plants and the use of materials that engage the senses of sight, smell, touch, taste, and sound. These types of gardens are popular with and beneficial to both children and adults, especially those who have sensory processing issues, including autism and other disabilities. To get the maximum use from a sensory garden, it is important to take into account for whom the garden is primarily intended. It is also important to understand what plants and features will best achieve the atmosphere that is desired. There are so many things to see, smell, touch and hear in the RDHS Sensory Garden, including the happy budgerigar’s chirping in their cage.
