Pet Therapy

We were lucky enough to have a whole host of animals join us at Heathlands from ‘Get to Know Animals’. From a giant rabbit to pgymy goats, we had great fun meeting them all!

Pet Therapy is a great social activity, but it also has so many great benefits for our residents too. It can reduce stress, anxiety and reduce your blood pressure too – being around animals also releases endorphins which gives you a great sense of calm and happiness.
