Multi-sensory Rooms

A Multisensory Room is a cutting edge environment that surrounds the resident with soothing, highly engaging stimuli that produce a calming effect on those living with Alzheimer’s or dementia. Studies show that the mood shift caused by this environment increases self-esteem and confidence, reduces inhibitions and aggressive behavior, and improves overall mood. Our Multi-sensory rooms are one of the many ways Runk & Pratt goes above and beyond to provide memory support that far exceeds that of the average facility.
