Murray Bridge Day Options Sensory Trail
Written on the 9 November 2017
We are excited to announce the completion of our new Sensory Trail at The Cottage, Day Options in Murray Bridge!
This project was funded through a Community Grant from the Rural City of Murray Bridge.
The benefits of gardening and sensory gardens for people living with disability are well documented, providing an opportunity to develop motor skills, express and enhance creativity, feel more involved in community, learn important life-skills, improve self-confidence and reduce stress. The new sensory trail provides a calming and relaxing space for our Murray Bridge Day Options clients and will benefit both their physical and mental health.
'The development of this project demonstrates our team's commitment to creating unique, quality services that suit the needs and develop the skills of all our clients,' says Mark Kulinski, Chief Executive of Community Living Australia.
Our team at Murray Bridge Day Options have been hard at work on the trail since April this year, and are pleased that it is now almost complete! Molly Baulch, Regional Manager for the Murraylands, says 'This has been a fantastic project for our clients and staff at The Cottage (Murray Bridge Day Options) over the last few months, it has broadened the scope of activities and experiences available to our clients and is already making a positive impact on the group.'
Community Living Australia would like to acknowledge and thank the Rural City of Murray Bridge for providing this grant and supporting a unique project which is sure to make a positive and lasting impact on the lives of our clients.
