Fury friend visits residents at Eastham care home in Chelmsford.

Residents at Eastham care home in Chelmsford, Essex, greatly benefited from a recent visit from a fury friend.

Animal-assisted interventions can often improve self-esteem and confidence in the elderly, especially those living with dementia. It can also promote quality of life and encourage independence. 

Visits from an animal can be an energetic experience and an exciting part of a person’s day. Animals can be a wonderful source of love and laughter, which is why at Runwood Homes we encourage varied activities with our residents, including pet therapy.
