The residents of Laureate Court Care Home in Rotherham have been spending time with some very cute four-legged friends. The charity Pets as Therapy has been visiting the home with some of its specially trained therapy dogs.
These pet therapy visits give residents the chance to spend time playing and bonding with the animals. This provides companionship, can help to combat loneliness and has many benefits for those living with dementia.
The visits from Pets As Therapy really do make everyone’s day and form part of our packed activities programme, which has something for everyone to enjoy every day.
