On Tuesday 21st June, we had a visit from C&J Animal Park. They had a range of animals and reptiles to show us at The Beeches Nursing home.
There were: Snakes, rabbits, gekko, stick insect, giant land snail, hamster, frog, bearded dragon, chinchilla and tortoise.
Everyone loved seeing and holding all these animals and reptiles, this was great fun and very therapeutic for everyone.
There are many benefits of animal therapy for our residents, these include:
- Improves your mood
- Decreases anxiety
- Has a calming effect
- Promotes social interaction
- Increases confidence and self-esteem
This was a lovely afternoon and was enjoyed by everyone as you can see from the photos below.
