Through musical hits from artists such as The Beach Boys to the scent of orange creamsicles, residents will delight in reliving joyous memories. They will have the opportunity to touch sand and seashells and to pop bubbles and gently toss beach balls while enjoying a custom slideshow of the most beautiful beaches in the world.

“Our residents were really into this program, especially the sensory part that was included. It’s hard to keep a crowd sitting still and they sat still for a full hour, which is very rare. It was really well done. They liked the bubbles and being able to touch stuff like the beach ball and the seashells.”
