Lily Pad (Diverse Abilities)

Poole, UK

August 2016

Having a theme to the bathroom means that it is not only a practical space but a space of discovery and distraction.

Bath-time has now become an activity to the children, 'Harry' now asks to have a bath at 3pm rather than watching the TV or having a play session. This room has had such an impact on the children but also the care staff at the centre. Magic Wand has created a space that is safe, engaging, practical and magical.

For some of the children the centre is the only place a child can have a bath as the specialist equipment is expensive and large so to fit out a family home would be almost impossible. The addition of the "bubbles" has transformed the bath from a functional item to a fun and sensory experience.
