Residents at Tunbridge Wells Care Centre are always excited when they receive a visit from Nightingale Dogs. The team at Nightingale have a number of dogs that they always bring along to their interactive and activity sessions, promoting warmth and happiness to anyone they come into contact with.
Having pets around the home can bring a lot of benefits to residents, including a lift in self-esteem, sensory stimulation, social interaction, stimulates play and of course a lift of mood and spirit! When they came to visit Tunbridge Wells they entertained the residents with their regular antics, including their own version of a maypole. They also demonstrated their handy skills, collecting socks from the washing line.
All the residents have the opportunity to for a cuddle or two and a play with the dogs, the team also make special visits to residents in their rooms, to ensure no-one misses out on a cuddle!
