Aged Care Centres
We are all aware that animals provide a number of health benefits when they are part of aged care homes, both in terms of pet therapy sessions and general day-to-day interaction with residents. The presence of an animal can reduce feelings of anxiety, and depression for people living in aged care homes. The act of stroking a pet encourages calmness and boosts morale. Our visit brings back memories, that they once experienced or have never experienced in their life time. We bring the animals to you.
A close encounter animal experience is great for all ages, from Childcare, Schools/OSHC. To touch, learn and have fun from close encounters with animals leading to empathy, respect for all creatures and nature. Our close encounters help to stimulate children to develop an awareness of the needs of animals. We can help with pet care, teaching children about responsibilities of owning a pet, which can get children off the computer and outside with nature.
When children interact with animals, a lot of great qualities come out. A close encounter of animals, builds the important feelings of connection, empathy and caring. Our visit helps with children who do not get the opportunity to own a pet or have no animals near them. All this teaches children that animals are living and make up an important part of our world.
