Animal Assisted Therapy and Activity
Pets are brought to a range of environments such as people's homes, schools and retirement homes for structured or informal activity sessions.
The animals act as an aid to making someone's day better, by having a therapeutic effect .The animals' presence and people's interaction with them encourages movement, communication and social interaction.
Animals can help to develop responsibility with appropriate support, and individuals may begin to overcome fears and gain confidence.
Social interaction for the elderly can be easily-achieved as lots of residential homes say the animal sessions are the only activities that some people leave their rooms to attend.
Room visits can be arranged if people are unable to leave their rooms.
