The “Human Room” – multi-sensory end of life care

The use of multi-sensory rooms as a form of engagement with art in palliative care is largely unexplored

Albany Hospice WA has conducted a study exploring the experiences of hospice-based inpatients receiving end-of-life care and their carers who immersed themselves into a multi-sensory room. 

Findings demonstrate that the room provided a safe space for reflection and re-connection that counteracted challenging times during their end of life. It fostered healing and well being by alleviating suffering through respite and sharing of treasured memories with loved ones.
