Animals in Care Homes
As we are continually striving to enhance our care that is given at College Fields, we have researched into the therapeutic benefits of having animals at home. Many will agree with the anonymous quote ‘ a house is not a home without a pet’ and this house is no exception. For some of our Residents the only sense of touch that they receive is in an
impersonal way for care purposes. Although we have ’Pets as Therapy’
research is proving that pets should be an integral part of ‘our family’.
Since having our ’extra’ family members we have found that several of our Residents are responding to the love, attention and stimulation given to them by Chocolate, Shandy, Benjy and Oliver.
