Creature Class Therapy sessions are perfect for nursing homes for the elderly as
well as individuals and groups with special needs. Studies have shown that the benefits
of using animals as therapy can be amazing and we often see extremely positive reactions
even from clients which carers expected to be unresponsive or disinterested. All
of our sessions are carried out in a safe and controlled manner as the welfare of
our animals and clients is of top importance to us.
Here are some of the many benefits of booking a Creature Class Therapy session:
A Sensory Experience - Extremely beneficial to those with a sensory impairment.
Allowing clients to explore sight, smell, sound and touch. Being able to feel the
different textures of fur, feathers, shells and scales can be very rewarding.
Can increase communication and socialisation.
Proven to improve the mood of those suffering with a mental illness and can aid in
alleviating stress and anxiety.
Can decrease boredom and stimulate activity.
Alzheimer's and dementia patients have been shown to have memories triggered by meeting
animals. This can often bring back lost memories of their younger days. The tortoise
is always a favourite! Regular visits may cause more significant improvements by
providing memorable experiences different from the usual routine.
Often much cheaper and less stressful than organising an outing as well as being
much more interactive and enriching.
Our therapy sessions start at as little as £70* per hour and we can also offer discounts
on multiple bookings. For an individual quote please contact us.
