Pet Therapy for Care Homes



Bringing joy to care homes across the UK

Animals can have a profound impact on people of all ages – But this is particularly true for seniors in care homes, where social interaction and emotional wellbeing are crucial.

1st Choices Animals' care home visits offer a unique opportunity for residents to connect with friendly and cuddly animals, carefully selected for their calm and affectionate temperaments. From individual visits for particular residents to home-wide group sessions, our animal agents take pride in our ability to create personalised experiences that cater to the specific needs of care homes.
