Seahaven staff, friends and family enjoy a sensory soiree!

The staff at Seahaven organised a fantastic afternoon full of sensory activities such as massage, arts and crafts, cake decorating, face painting and outdoor games.

In addition to providing support for National Care Home Open Day, the event was organised to help celebrate Seahaven’s move to become a specialist ‘Total Communication’ setting, helping people with learning disabilities and complex sensory needs learn independent living skills, with a view to moving on to Supported Living wherever possible.

Seahaven’s Manager Sharon Head said: “We wanted to remind people that care homes in every community are filled with unique, intelligent and charming characters, and run by special people that really do care.

“We enjoyed a really good turnout on the day with families of the people we support, care managers, commissioners, our local speech & language therapist and dual sensory team representative, plus our friends and neighbours. Everyone had a lovely afternoon.”
