Animal Assisted Therapy

Animal Assisted Therapy for Residential Care Homes and Rehabilitation Centre’s

Animal Assisted Therapy (AAT) is a great way to stimulate the minds and senses of both the young and elderly. I have experience working alongside people of all ages with various conditions such as dementia, autism, downs syndrome and the visually impaired. Animal Assisted Activities sessions provide an extremely rewarding experience for both residents and staff.

Animal Assisted Activities (AAA) – The Benefits

With opportunities to have close physical contact with the animals, their warmth, feeling heartbeats, the feel of skin textures and soft fur/feathers and giving comforting hugs, all contribute positive, happy feelings. Happy childhood memories of past loved pets can also be triggered and give positive results to people with dementia and such.

I offer excellent rates to residential and care homes in East Sussex, parts of West Sussex and Kent to help make the experience more accessible to all. Please submit your requirements through the contact form for a quote.

I hold full public liability insurance up to £10m, risk assessment and current DBS certificate, as well as the required licencing.

Some of the feedback from visits to Care Homes and Rehabilitation Centre’s

“I am an activities coordinator in a rest home in Worthing. Nicky brought along a selection of her animals yesterday for my residents. A lovely time was had by all, I was extremely impressed. Nicky was patient, answered everyone’s questions and everyone got a cuddle. One of our ladies will be 100 this month, a few people hardly come out of their rooms, and this session was the highlight of their week. All the animals looked superbly cared for and are extremely gentle. Will definitely rebook and will certainly recommend.” – Romona

 

“Thank you so much for a very enjoyable afternoon. Nicky brought her beautiful animals in for a wonderful group of elderly people I work with. Everyone was so touched by the animals, Nicky is wonderful, patient and kind. A big highlight for all. Well done and thank you so much.” – Ann Marie
