Care & Rest Homes

A form of interactive therapy

We treat you and your residents as a form of interactive therapy by bringing along a selection of our owls. All these birds have been hand reared by ourselves. They are both very tame and are used to being handled by adults and children alike.

During our session we spend time with your residents talking to them and encouraging them to interact with the owls and ourselves.

We have found that no matter what age or background, being so close to and being able to touch these magnificent creatures really does stimulate the mind, body and soul. The therapeutic use of pets as companions has gained increasing attention in recent years for a wide range of patients including the elderly. The birds can provide a constant source of comfort and focus for attention, which has proved to be beneficial to both the physical and mental health of individuals.
