Are you considering bringing in ponies to visit your residents in your care home? Here are three reasons why we do it and why we think you should too!
Brings joy and happiness
Our residents love the visits from ponies. It’s a unique and exciting experience for them, and it brings them so much joy and happiness. Many of our residents have never had the opportunity to interact with ponies before, so it’s a new and exciting experience for them.
Promotes physical activity
Interacting with the ponies is a great way for our residents to get some exercise and fresh air. They love petting the ponies and taking them for walks around the gardens. It’s a gentle form of exercise that they can do at their own pace.
Brings a sense of community
The presence of ponies can help foster a sense of community and togetherness among our residents. When residents interact with ponies, they can bond over their shared enjoyment of the animals and the joy they bring. Additionally, caring for ponies can require teamwork and cooperation.
We hope this has convinced you to consider bringing in ponies to visit your care home residents. It’s a simple but effective way to bring joy and happiness to their lives.
