Tactile Tool Box
The Coffs Shed was commissioned by the Coffs Harbour Health Campus to make a Tactile Tool Box to be used by people living with dementia.
The material was donated by Coffs Harbour Hardwoods and all the guys pitched in to build this worthy project.
Note: Sensory stimulation for Alzheimer’s patients and people with other forms of dementia has been shown to decrease agitation and restlessness,
as well as improve sleep.
These symptoms are very common in most forms of dementia, and certainly in people with Alzheimer’s,
so sensory stimulation translates as improved quality of life for the patient as well as for the caregiver.
One of the shed's latest projects:
Playground boat built for 'Caterpillar House' (local Child Care Centre).
Building material supplied by Coffs Harbour Hardwoods, built by 'Ross' and assisted by other guys from our shed.
