In a commentary by Georgina Charlesworth, MPhil, ClinPsyD, activity sessions had an immediate beneficial effect on behaviour and mood with people of age. Whether in their own home or after moving to a retirement community the effects were undeniable and lost once the the treatments stopped.
Groups were rated by staff as talking more spontaneously; relating better to others; doing more on their own initiative; and being more happy, active, and alert in the 10 minutes immediately after intervention sessions. Equally important is the observation of a negative withdrawal effect after the intervention stopped. Further work is necessary to generate data on optimal dose and duration of Sensory Therapies.
