Fawley care home celebrates donation of state-of-the-art sensory table


Ashlett Dale Rest Home, which accommodates residents over 65, including people with Alzheimer’s and other forms of dementia, received the donation from ExxonMobil Fawley as part of the company’s continued commitment to invest in the local community.

The sensory table, which displays a 39” inch interactive screen, offers a variety of experiences on a touch-activated table top device. It is specifically designed to encourage interaction among users with memory impairment.

Collette Willis, Proprietor and Manager of Ashlett Dale Rest Home said the donation has been a huge hit. She said: “The table has a variety of activities each designed to improve cognitive function and communication skills.

Our residents have been enjoying taking part in memory games, quizzes, jigsaws and even using the table to catch up with loved ones.”

She added: “We are extremely grateful for this generous donation from ExxonMobil Fawley. The table has fast become the heart of our home and has injected a lot of fun into our daily activities.

Our residents can even do a spot of online shopping or play sensory games that can help to stimulate their cognitive function and improve their hand-eye coordination.”

Louise Leavy, Organisation Development Manager at ExxonMobil Fawley, said: “We are delighted to have been able to help fund this brilliant piece of equipment which I am sure will bring hours of fun, as well as health and wellbeing benefits, to the residents at Ashlett Dale.”
