Residents had a visit from some four legged friends this week.

Eden Garden Club came along to the home to provide residents with some much loved pet therapy.  

Lots of our residents really benefit from this one to one interaction with the animals and their handlers, with many choosing to get hands on themselves and have a little cuddle with the pets.

Pets can provide companionship and a source of affection, conversation and activity.  The direct physical contact is not only sensory but can also help to calm anxiety.

We look forward to having some more animals visit the home again.
