Studies have shown that interacting with animals can increase brain activity, especially for people with mobility or cognitive issues.
At The Angela Grace we have regular visits from guinea pigs, PAT dogs, Shetland ponies, as well as more exotic animals. It gives our residents something to look forward to and can really help combat loneliness, especially for those who used to have pets of their own.
Home manager, Edyta Ortel said: “It really puts a smile on our residents faces and enhances their overall wellbeing. They absolutely love stroking and petting the animals!”
