Izzy the pet therapy dog loves popping in to see the residents at Bon Accord Care Home in Hove, especially because they give the best cuddles and the best treats.
Belinda Bradford, Personal Activity Leader, explained: “Izzy visits every week and has become a bit of a celebrity here at Bon Accord. She is from the USA and moved over here with her family. Her mum Judy brings her in every week and we’re so grateful, the looks on the residents’ faces show how appreciative they are.”
Pet therapy has a fantastic effect on people, by soothing them and bringing them out of their shell. Izzy certainly does this for the ladies and gents at Bon Accord.
