Pet Therapy

Care homes and Rehabilitation centres

Pet therapy also known as animal-assisted therapy (AAT) is a type of therapy that involves animals as forms of treatment.

Our pet therapy is available to a wide range of establishments  and our experienced pet handlers will interact between people and pets, thus creating a wonderful experience.

  • Improve a patient’s social, emotional, and cognitive processing
  • Provide an experience that can help reduce stress and anxiety
  • A hands on experience that creates a bond between people and animals
  • Use the pets to enable the creation of drawings, storytelling and literature
  • Improve Self esteem, confidence by interaction
  • Pets offer uncondtional love & attention
  • It can promote a calming atmosphere and stimulate childhood memories

Sycamore Hall Care Home recently enjoyed Pet Therapy from Aquatic Finatic. There was a 60-year-old and a 1-year-old tortoise, a chinchilla, rabbit, guinea pig, ferret, barn owl, a bearded dragon and a snake. All the residents were intrigued and wanted to hold the animals. It was wonderful to see all their happy faces.
