A SELECTION of sensory toys has been handed over to staff at the Worcestershire Royal Hospital by Taylor Wimpey Midlands, as part of its ongoing commitment to working in partnership with local communities.
The Riverbank children’s ward received the toys which have now been added to the hospital’s sensory room. The toys, which are to be used by both the hospital’s play team and patients and their families, include items such as colour changing mood lights, light up tambourines and illuminating gloves.
Emma Mander, senior Hospital Play Specialist at Worcestershire Royal Hospital, said: “Sensory items are incredibly important for all of our patients. They not only help with the development of the patient but can aid sensory play, change the mood in a room and help with distraction during procedures.
“Our patients are our number one priority and we are always looking at ways to improve their stay with us, however long it may be for.”
Anne Wallace, sales and marketing director at Taylor Wimpey Midlands, said: “It’s always a pleasure to support the communities close to where we build. We are so thrilled to hear that the toys will not only help the patient’s development but will also provide some much needed enjoyment.”
Taylor Wimpey’s donation to Worcestershire Royal Hospital is one of the many contributions being made by the housebuilder towards community facilities and infrastructure in the wider area.
