Animal magic came to Holbrook Hall Residential Care Home, thanks to Wildlife Workshop. They brought a whole array of animals with them, ranging from guinea pigs to tarantulas and corn snakes. Our residents revelled in their company and took the opportunity to hold them whenever possible. Less can be said of the staff 😁!!
The benefits of animal therapy for the elderly is well documented and includes reducing blood pressure, easing depression, improving relaxation, elevating the mood, easing emotional pain and increasing social cohesion amongst others.
