A four legged friend bounded into Fernwood Court Care Home in Walsall last week to provide some pet therapy for the residents in the home.
Kim-Marie Donaghy, Home Manager, explained: “Animals have a calming effect on people. Whether you settle down and pet your cat or dog, cuddle a guinea pig or rabbit, your stresses just ebb away as you relax. Everyone in the home enjoyed meeting this particular four legged friend. He had such a positive impact on the residents that we’ve decided to make it a regular thing. If we’re not careful, we’ll have to give him his own room!”
