Pet Friendly Service
Pets are often important to people who need domiciliary care and support. This is likely to be even more so for people who are less mobile or who are more isolated.
Evidence from studies tells us that the animal-human emotional bond brings significant emotional and social benefits. Pets provide purpose, routine and consistency to many people’s lives. Pets make people feel safe and secure. They provide company and can support grieving adults and children, so that symptoms of depression are reduced. Touch is crucial to well-being. Stroking a pet has been proved to have a calming and relaxing effect, even producing physiological effects such as lowered blood pressure.
If you have a pet we will work hard to match you to a care worker who also enjoys and understands animals.
