Hi
I am looking to receive details on activities that can be done with elderly suffering from complete sensory loss. (altered sensorium)

Do you mean that they are almost in a coma ??
I find simple sensory stimulation to be good

Maybe you can do range of motion exercises while you talk to the resident if they can hear you

ROM exercises are conducted by PTs at the facility.
Thanks for sharing a link Susan .

Hi Nikunj, maybe light hand massages while playing soft music. If they are in a coma as Susan asked it probably is still beneficial to play soft music in the room or to talk with them even if they don't seem to respond.
