Sally has recently started running SONAS sessions with staff from the Mental Health Trust. Originating in Dublin, SONAS means ‘wellbeing’ in Irish Gaelic. Held on Wednesday mornings at the Bideford Centre in Baguley, the group offers a range of simple sensory activities – smell, taste, touch, sound and sight – for enjoyment in the moment. Because the group is small, everyone has opportunities to join in fully. Carers have said that it helped them to think how they could be more in the moment and communicate differently with their relative. Get in touch if you would like to try the group.
