PET THERAPY AT HOMEFIELD

19 October 2017

Residents at Homefield had some fun last week as they welcomed Nightingale Dogs back for another pet therapy session. “The dogs are very loving – they do little tricks and the residents always look forward to seeing them”, Angela Watts, Activity Carer, told us.

Residents enjoyed getting up close to their four-legged friends. One of our residents, Barry, was delighted to play games with his favourite dog and gave him chewy sticks. Another resident, Dorothy, who likes to cuddle the dogs, said: “I have always been an animal lover.” Iris also added: “These are lovely dogs, very well-behaved. I loved the whole experience, especially when I was feeding them with biscuits”.

Everybody is looking forward to welcoming our furry friends back again soon!
