care home threapy sessions 

 

In nursing and care homes it has been proven that animals can stimulate the mind and promote wellbeing, especially helping people with learning difficulties and dementia.  We can provide a stimulating hour display (inside or out) with a selection of beautiful owls.  For the more physically challenged people, we can visit independent rooms where they can see these beautiful creatures up close. The falconer is also trained in mental health and healthcare.

 

We also offer the animal assisted therapy with birds of prey to young disengaged children.

Training the birds has positive effects on cooperation, concentration and communication. The children learn about positive motivation and they gain patience, self-confidence and joy of life.

This therapy is suitable for children with ADHS and ADD as well as for depressive and autistic children and young adults.

Every therapy lesson is guided by an experienced professional with over ten years’ experience in working with a wide range of behavioural, emotional and social difficulties.

Benefits

Studies have shown that physical contact with a pet can lower high blood pressure, and improve survival rates for heart attack victims. There is also evidence that petting an animal can cause endorphins to be released. Endorphins are chemicals in the body that suppress the pain response. These are benefits that can be enjoyed from pet ownership, as well as from visiting therapeutic animals.

Many skills can be learned or improved with the assistance of a therapy animal. Patient rehabilitation can be encouraged by such activities as walking or running with a dog, or throwing objects for the animal to retrieve. Fine motor skills may be developed by petting, grooming, or feeding the animal. Patient communication is encouraged by the response of the animal to either verbal or physical commands. Activities such as writing or talking about the therapy animals or past pets also develop cognitive skills and communication. Creative inclusion of an animal in the life or therapy of a patient can make a major difference in the patient's comfort, progress, and recovery.
