Pentlow Nursing Home


Pet Pals

We had a wonderful afternoon with our friends from PetPals who brought along their very friendly rabbits, who really enjoyed some cuddles and TLC from our residents.

It’s also a great activity for those residents who are nursed in bed, as PetPals make a special visit to everyone so no-one gets to miss out on some cuddles!

Animals offer both comfort physically and emotionally, bringing about much conversation, reminiscence, and laughter between our residents. There are many benefits of Animal Therapy, such as a decrease in stress & anxiety, loneliness but also improves joint movement, self-esteem and it’s a great social activity too.
