Residents at Avocet House Care Home had a lovely day with a special visit from Michelle’s Animal Petting Party.
Residents enjoyed the opportunity to pet, cuddle and groom the different animals.
Home Manager Tracey Klue commented, ‘During the visit from Michelle’s Animal Petting Party, Avocet House had also put on an Easter Egg hunt for children in the local community. They had a wonderful time looking for where the Easter Bunny had hidden all the Easter Eggs, they did a fabulous job finding them and outsmarted the Easter Bunny. The children loved taking part in the Easter Egg Hunt and enjoyed joining in with the animal petting party, everyone had a great time!’
The activity had a great impact on not only our residents but our team members to, animal therapy can be used for many reasons, the most common benefits include improving self-esteem, and reducing anxiety and stress. Our residents had a wonderful time cuddling and fussing over our furry friends.
We have a fabulous day with Michelle’s Animal Petting Party, the residents and team members thoroughly enjoyed themselves. We can’t wait for their next visit.
