Wigmore Care Home Launches Namaste Room

Rogers House Residential Care Home has unveiled its new Namaste room, offering intensive sensory stimulation for the residents living with dementia.

Designed and decorated entirely by the Drewery Drive care home’s activity team, Hannah and Debbie, the bright and open room includes recycled wooden pallets, in a bid to bring the outside in, as well as being environmentally conscious.

The room will enable residents to benefit from person-centred care in a calm environment, specifically tailored for those living with dementia. Staff have been trained to deliver Namaste Care sessions, which can include anything from hand and foot massage to music therapy.

The Namaste Care programme was developed in America with title ‘Namaste’ meaning ‘to honour the spirit within’. The programme is designed to engage people with advanced dementia through stimulating the five senses: taste, touch, smell, sight and hearing.

Hannah Newman-Brown, Activity Coordinator at Rogers House said: “We’ve worked hard to create a soothing and attractive environment for the residents, including lots of fundraising and doing all the decorating ourselves, so we are incredibly proud of how it has turned out and are thrilled that it is now up and running.

“I have no doubt that having this dedicated, uninterrupted time and space set aside for quiet one-to-one interaction with the residents will support us in continuing to deliver an exceptional level of care and support, that is person-centred.”

Question 2

Would you prefer to rent a bedsit within a small house or to buy or rent an apartment within a scheme?
