Goldcrest house create a soothing environment with the development of a very special multi-sensory room to create a haven where service users can relax.
Ralph Parish, manager at Goldcrest says: “The new room is a place where any individual at Goldcrest House, service user or staff, can go and relax. It shuts out the noise or stimulus from everyday activities within their environment, and replaces it with an experience of lighting and music that can be modified to suit their needs. It really is a nice place to go to get away from it all.
“Some of our service users go to have fun with the lighting, others go to listen to music, it can be an exciting place or a relaxing place, but importantly it’s there for each and every individual to use as they wish.”
