Pet Therapy – Not Just For Dogs Anymore!
Animals and pets are always a very welcome distraction for our residents at Millhouse Care Centre. It’s win win every time we have a four legged friend pay us a visit – they bring such simple joy into our days, and help our residents stay connected with their lives before they moved to Millhouse, and their community. For our residents suffering the effects of dementia the playful interaction, gentle touch and positive non-verbal interactions can ease any stress or behavioral issues on the day.
One of our most successful pet visits was when we welcomed a precious pink piggy into our home – her mere presence lifted residents and staff alike, and was the topic of conversation long after she trotted out the door.
Millhouse Care Centre is a 62 bed nursing home nestled in the picturesque, peaceful, woodland settings of Newtown Commons, just 1 mile from New Ross. Modern and purpose designed our home is resident-led – residents and their families are always at the centre of everything we do, and are very actively involved in the care planning and delivery.
