Animals can have a fantastic effect on people’s wellbeing. A recent example of this has been at Evedale Care Home in Coventry, when Frank the residential dog helped to reassure relatives following the death of a loved one.
Yvonne Russon, Home Manager, explained: “The family of a resident who sadly passed away, brought in a water bowl and some treats for our dog Frank as a thank you for his love to their late mother, during her final few days. They said Frank helped to console their dad, our resident’s husband during this time of deep sorrow, asking nothing more than a hand resting on his head. I think this shows the lovely effect animals can have. I want to thank the family for Frank’s treats.”
