Nottinghamshire Healthcare NHS Foundation Trust
Keval Morjaria - Occupational Therapist, Arnold Lodge
What I changed:
It provided the patients with an alternative sensory experience in an outdoor setting. Patients were able to experience sensory input from natural means, e.g. birds singing, sunlight, wind blowing, temperature. The techniques taught within the session are accessible for the patients to practice within their own time, without the need for specialist equipment.
How it benefited service users and / or carers:
Patients provided positive feedback of being outside and with fresh air for the sessions. Patients have requested to have more sessions outdoors in addition to the indoor sensory sessions.
