Sensory tasting session proves a success at East Hill House

A sensory tasting afternoon hosted at East Hill House proved to be an enlightening experience recently in a food-themed challenge.

The daring residents were invited to explore many of their senses as they were blindfolded and presented with a variety of bowls of fruit and vegetables hidden under a cloth. They then had to investigate the foods through touch, smell and taste alone, before successfully identifying them.

Many of the staff and residents were surprised at quite how challenging the task was, commenting ‘You take food for granted, but it’s actually quite difficult if you can’t see what you’re eating!’

Located in the village of Liss, East Hill House provides high quality residential and specialist dementia care for up to 35 elderly people in a unique setting.
