Acacia Care residents had a great morning with Poppy, the therapy dog. Poppy and her owner Peter visit our residents regularly which brings so much joy to everyone and our residents are always so happy to see her. Residents were also able to watch and interact with Poppy.
Animal therapy has been proven to have a massive impact on the lives of our residents. Pet therapy in care or nursing homes offer affection, enjoyment, and entertainment, giving residents a break in routine and something they can look forward to. The animals that visit our home not only offer companionship but also help residents to build friendships with other residents in the home.
It was brilliant to see so many enjoying the experience, a lovely morning!
