Staff and residents of EachStep Blackley had a special visit from the animals from Home Safari for a session of animal-assisted therapy.

 

It has been recognised by health professionals that animal therapy can benefit a person’s health and wellbeing, as well as being an exciting and engaging experience for residents and loved ones! 

 

Residents and staff all got the opportunity to hold and interact with all the animals, which included a goat and a ferret, with the more fearless in the group even getting to grips with a snake!

 

Take a look at some great pictures from the session…
