Care home visits

Animal Assisted Therapy has proven to be a powerful antidote to the feelings of loneliness, dependency and isolation often experienced by seniors who are unable to live in their own homes or with family members. In the presence of our therapy animals even patients suffering from dementia tend to be less withdrawn and more in touch with their own feelings. Participating in these visits is one of the most rewarding aspects of being part of Kingswood Shetlands staff. Not soon are forgotten the emotional connections made between the residents and ponies. If you are an activities co-ordinator within a setting we would love to hear from you.
