Dr. Bob’s Place Sensory Room

Sensory RoomFaculty members Jenna Frye, Jason Corace, and Jay Gould facilitated an independent study where students from multiple disciplines collaborated with staff at Dr. Bob's Place, a hospice center for terminally ill children, to create a sensory room for the organization. Students collaborated with Dr. Bob's staff and researched the needs of patients dealing with end-of-life care. The design is specific to the needs of hospice care where the core function of the sensory room is palliative care. The design team worked proactively to create a space that is both stimulating and relaxing for patients, family, and the Dr. Bob's Place staff. A therapeutic waterbed feature serves as the focal point of the space. The team created and built furniture, accessories, projected animations and sound to enhance the sensory experience.
