A HANDS-ON EXPERIENCE FOR RESIDENTS AT ELMWOOD

11 May 2017

Residents at Elmwood got hands on with visitors recently as they welcomed back pets as therapy company, Nightingale Dogs.

The dogs, of various breeds and sizes, entertained residents by jumping on tables to catch balls, fetching balls and dancing to various music. One of our relatives, Leyland Ingram, noted: “The dogs have a positive impact on the health of the residents. It is nice to see smiles on their faces.”

Each of the residents could touch and feel as well as play with the dogs. After the show, one of our residents, Lestrine Wishart, asked: “When are they coming back? I’ve enjoyed every minute of it!”

We look forward to seeing our four-legged friends again very soon.
