Aged Care

Sensory Wizard design and manufacturer playgrounds to be installed in aged care homes or retirement villages for the grandkids or the local kindy or school children who visit, creating a truly intergenerational environment. Imagine the moments of pleasure as the residents and children use the interactive projections as well as traditional indoor playgrounds together.

We design and build sensory playgrounds to your specifications and needs. Within the bespoke environment of your choosing you will be able to control colours, sounds, images and aromas. We can incorporate calming rooms to reduce anxiety or stimulating, engaging rooms combined with a choice of interactive projectors which can project on various types of surface. The design is limited only by your imagination and needs.

Sensory Wizard has incorporated our intergenerational playgrounds with our motion activated range of sensory projectors to provide an experience for both young and old in your facility.  We are the exclusive Australian distributor of OMI projection systems based in the UK, pioneers of motion activated sensory technology.

Our intergenerational playgrounds may be located in many areas of your facility right down to a small unused corner of a room. The playgrounds encourage visitation from children and grand-children to visit their older relatives with the enticement of being able to play in the playground or use the OMI system which may be pre-loaded with games for children.

OMI have led the way in providing inter-generational projection in homes, hospitals and specialist centres since 2005. With a dedicated team of engineers, designers and health-care specialists they have created a bespoke range of products that provide meaningful activities for all ages and abilities to encourage movement, active participation and shared enjoyment.
