At Historic Royal Palaces we want provide people living with dementia and their carers the best possible experience when visiting our palaces. Our new Learning & Engagement programme ‘Sensory Palaces’ is a health and wellbeing programme for people living with dementia and their carers. This programme aims to combine storytelling and the five senses to increase participants’ sense of wellbeing, belonging and confidence through multi-sensory learning, helping them better explore the stories of some of the greatest palaces ever built. ‘Sensory Palaces’ will provide opportunities for our staff and volunteers to gain an awareness of dementia and the needs and expectations of people living with dementia and their carers, helping us deliver a better overall visitor experience.
