Hays Free Press July 8, 2015 COMMUNITY Page 3C Marbrldge: Sensory experience helps patients at Villa Continued from pg. 1C When staffbrought her into the sensorium last week, they noticed she seemed more alert and aware of her surroundings. Jamison placed Annie on the massage chair, which he said is used to help stimulate her nerve endings and help her feel sensatiofis. Her eyes fol- lowed the images projected on the wall, which Jamson said are also used for persons with Alzheimer's and other forms of dementia. Annie's mom, Cindy Mills, spoke about her daughter - called "Re" by her three siblings - and her connection with sensory experiences. "We noticed as Annie was growing up that anything that she could touch We noticed a facial reaction to it, whether she liked it or not, like a potato chip bag; we would squeeze the bag- she would react, start to laugh and want more," Mills said. "We bought a lot of potato chips." Mills said Annie also liked to press big red buttons that were connected, for example, to a fan, a light or a train. Auditory sensation was important to PHOTO BY KIM HILSENBECK The new Sensory Room at Marbridge Villa in Manchaca offers residents therapy using lights, sound, aromas and touch. Social Services Director Alicia Taylor said the room was built thanks to an anonymous donor. Allnie. "She could hear the choo choo train go off. See the light. Feel the fan. She was respond- ing to those things. They made her very happy," Mills said. Mills said once Annie mined 21 and aged out of the special education program at her school, it was time to figure out what to do for Annie for the rest of her life. Doctors told Mills Annie's life expectancy was 18 years. She's already lived nearly a decade past that milestone. And once the Mills family found Marbridge, "we knew it was the place for her." Mills said, "The sensory motor building was an answer to our prayers. [Annie] will sit in the massage chair. She is feeling something going on in her back and her whole body." That action gives circulation to her back and body, accord- ing to Mills. A box on the wall near the zero gravity chair contains aroma therapy; four oversized knobs with essential oils go into the box and a fan blows the scent out. Mills said Annie likes the aroma therapy. "It relaxes her. That's good if you have seizures," she said. Overall, Mills said her experience with having Annie there, and now especially with the sensorium, has been positive. "This has been a really great facility. They take amazing care of her," she said. Solutio.
