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.

You are invited you to explore the Kwop Wirrin Human Room in digital format through this video.
