Meet Kelsie Cheney, Occupational Therapy Student at Engel Haus created Sensory/ Memory Bins as one of her fieldwork projects. She did an amazing job!

"Sensory/Memory bins stimulate the senses (in this case, specifically tactile, visual, and olfactory), increase fine motor coordination, social interaction, and engagement, facilitate conversation, evoke memories, and improve mood. The questions are designed to promote reminiscing with a combination of close-ended, open-ended, and either/or questions. Sensory stimulation is especially important for people with dementia and Alzheimer’s because it allows them to make connections, recall memories, and express themselves."  -Kelsie Cheney


Music is one of our favorite things!
