Calming Creatures

Our animal programs are not only fun and educational but they can be calming, soothing and therapeutic as well! We offer hands-on experiences with some special members of our animal team that can benefit your physical and mental health and will surely melt your heart.

For Assisted Living

Animal therapy is great for all ages, including seniors. We often facilitate reminiscing experiences during our sessions. We may ask guests about their own pets from their past or their experiences with other animals and nature. These can be very rewarding experiences, especially with seniors in memory care.

Some amazing benefits that live animal encounters can provide to residents of assisted living are the following: 

  • Meeting activity goals
  • Providing sensory experiences
  • Use of fine motor skills
  • Cognitive enrichment through reminiscing
  • Encouraging social activity
  • Fun for family visits
  • Providing animal connections to people of all ages

Animals are Patient

Animal therapy is also a great wellness activity for patients under medical care, and it can be a wonderful relief for those experiencing long-term hospital stays. Animal visits are also good for family members that have been supporting their loved ones while in the hospital or under long-term medical care.

Patients experiencing mental health issues greatly benefit from touching, holding, and being around animals. Also, animals are known to reduce stress, pain, depression and anxiety. 

We believe animal therapy is for everyone, and we absolutely love providing this service to those that need it. We know how much it has healed us and our families as well.
