Hi how can you make the bedroom of a resident more calming and relaxing

Hi! Thanks for writing in! A few ideas: a noise machine or CD player with calming music, heat – definitely need the room to be warm, my residents love when their rooms are hot!, reduce clutter, but do add comforting things like old photos or artwork they like (I always find it odd when residents don’t have any pictures!), comfy sheets or a comforter that the resident likes (blues and other light, calm colors are good), anything else personal and nice for others to connect with the resident about. Maybe some stuffed animals or a baby doll if the resident is interested! Many of my residents have stuffed animals and comfy pillows.
