Pets As Therapy visit Cherry Tree House
Pets are not just adorable and cute to look at, they give us all companionship, love and joy and brighten our mood. For older people and particularly those suffering from dementia pets can also help stimulate physical activity through petting and playing with them. This can be both fun and soothing, but it can also help with reminiscence and for this reason pets are always welcome at any L&M Healthcare home.
Recently Pets As Therapy visited Cherry Tree House where residents took time out to thoroughly enjoy making a fuss over this little cutie. Pets As Therapy are at the forefront of community based Animal Assisted Therapy across the UK. It’s run by volunteers who share their time and their pets in order to bring joy, companionship and comfort to lots of people.
