Therapy sessions

We now visit over 100 nursing homes, dementia units and day centres for the elderly and disabled since our very first visit to a local nursing home in 2011.  

The reactions, songs and stories that the animals inspire, during their visits, never ceases to amaze us and the care staff on duty.  We visit day centres across Dorset, Hampshire and Wiltshire, and visit care homes that are under the banner of Sunrise Senior Living, Colten Care, B.U.P.A., Order of St John's, Brighterkind, Care South, as well as many smaller and privately owned homes.  All of our clients have stayed with us over the years, all booking multiple visits across the year, several booking a visit as often as once a month.

We offer lounge visits, room visits, or a combination of the two, we offer open day mingles introducing the animals to visitors, and we offer themed appearances at Halloween, dressed as witches, and Christmas, dressed as elves, where appropriate.

These encounters cost £80 per hour for up to 15 handlers.  We can cater to larger audience sizes, with two Creature Teachers in attendance.  Please contact us for a quote.

Please note there will be a fuel charge.

We will discuss with you the options that would work best for your group, during the booking process and, together, we will design a visit to suit your needs.
