Making a difference to the wellbeing of every individual through specialist canine support
Canine Assistance for Care Homes provides animal assisted interventions to care homes to bring valuable support and companionship to those in need. The individuals we support can have a range of mental and physical related issues such as difficulty walking, or trouble with their sight or hearing or a more progressive condition such as dementia or alzheimers. We provide weekly, fortnightly and monthly visits to individuals and small groups and bring much welcomed positive energy in the day for the people that we work with who are always delighted to spend time with our professionally trained dogs.
There have been many studies into the hugely positive effects of dogs with dementia patients and within the care home setting. At Canine Assistance for Care Homes we are able to utilise the unique human-animal bond and provide animal assisted interventions with our specially trained therapy dogs and professional practitioners.
Our visiting teams can help promote both physical and emotional wellbeing including agitation, depression and loneliness and have shown to provide comfort and promote calm.
This specialist team will create a bespoke package tailored to the individuals needs or we can create sessions for small groups too providing similar valuable support and therapy working with the care establishment for a seamless all-rounded service.
For an initial discussion on how we can work with your care establishment or a specific individual, please contact us. We would love to hear from you.
