There was animal mania when Sanctuary Care residents in Bilston received a visit from a rather unusual collection of animals.
The array of animals, including critters and creepy crawlies, were the star attraction when they visit residents at Lime Tree Court Residential Care Home on Thursday 16 January.
Among the interesting creatures visiting the home there were Dutch rabbits, domestic brown rats, hermit crabs, corn snakes, green tree frogs and millipedes.
ZooLab deliver imaginative animal-handling workshops to community groups across the UK. The animal-assisted therapy they deliver is proven to promote wellbeing, increase social participation and enhance quality of life for the elderly, including those who live with dementia.
The home’s manager Julie Wrighton said: “Our residents absolutely love animals, their faces lit up when they saw them - even the more obscure animals!
“Animal therapy can be so therapeutic, especially for people living with dementia because it is very calming and relaxing, so we were delighted to welcome this rather unusual collection of creatures to Lime Tree Court!”
