Bugs And Bunnies visit Field House
Field House residents recently had the opportunity to interact with a number of different animals during a visit from Wild Science.
At Field House we work closely with our dedicated activities coordinator to provide a variety of activities, workshops and events for all of our residents. It is important to us that we provide our residents with enjoyable, stimulating activities that are beneficial to both their health and mental wellbeing.
Wild Science are the UK’s number one animal experience experts, offering therapeutic workshops for a number of industries including education, the elderly and those with special needs.
Animal therapy is a fantastic way for residents to interact with animals and experience the many benefits that they can bring.
Wild Science brought a very friendly bunch of fluffy animals and scaly reptiles to meet our residents, providing them with a variety of different textures and personalities.
Studies show that introducing the elderly to Animal Therapy can help improve self esteem, verbal communication, motor skills and social engagement, while lessening the effects of depression, loneliness, boredom and anxiety.
Due to their calming and comforting nature, Animal Therapy is also an ideal activity for those suffering with dementia, as it offers them a new and unique experience.
Our residents thoroughly enjoyed the visit from Wild Science and we look forward to inviting them back for another workshop very soon!
