Doctors give the thumbs up for animal assisted therapy to be used in nursing homes.
The proven treatment known as Animal Assisted Therapy and Animal Assisted Activities bring so many benefits to people with diminished communication skills or who are wheelchair or bed bound.
With regular interaction, our gentle natured ponies have an uncanny ability to lift spirits and encourage communication even from residents who rarely engage. Even just eye contact with the pony and some gentle stroking is all that it takes to bring a smile … and yes, even a tear to people trapped in ailing bodies and minds.
It’s seems such a small thing to do – invite a pony to visit, but to bring extra joy to possibly the last remaining years of our loved one’s lives is priceless.
