Werombi Court have recently introduced an Aroma Touch program for their residents. Our Werombi Court Leisure and Lifestyle staff were trained by Fiona Jones, and were taught to use different scents and smells to provide a sensory experience for the residents.
The staff were also taught how to use a singing bowl, which has been used for centuries as a meditative and relaxation tool in various cultures around the world.
The residents have very much embraced the new program. They have enjoyed the comforting and relaxing effects of aroma touch, with residents able to choose their own scent for their own experience. It has been a great experience for the residents as a relaxation and reminiscence activity. Staff have also been loving the one on one aspect of this activity and are looking forward to continuing this special program with the residents.
