Hands-on animal holding experience for residents of all abilities, including those suffering from dementia. The session can vary depending on the group, from straight forward pet therapy sessions where residents have the opportunities to hold a variety of animals from cute mammals, reptiles to a Tarantula. For the more able, a workshop session can be arranged where the different animals country of origin, habitats, diets and lifestyles are discussed as part of the experience.
