Animal Magic!

Animal Magic!

According to the Petpals Therapy website: “Animals have been used for therapy since the late 18th Century and research has shown that stress reduction can occur after as little as five minutes of interaction with an animal. When brought into an environment where people are limited physically and mentally, animal assisted activity delivers both therapy and entertainment.”

Residents at Windlesham Manor have been enjoying regular visits by Petpals Therapy and other animal therapy groups throughout the last few months. Animals to have visited have included owls, chickens, lambs, ducks and Shetland ponies.
