Residents at Marchglen Care Centre welcomed back their favourite pet therapy dog, Haggis, as part of an ongoing pet therapy programme that operates at the home.
Animal-assisted therapy is a growing area that uses all types of animals, including dogs, to help people recover or cope better with health problems. This type of interaction has shown to improve self-esteem and mood, as well as help with depression, loneliness and anxiety. It can also aid in recovery and improve social skills and mental health and wellbeing.
Recently we welcomed back Haggis, the wonderful French Bulldog, who our residents love, as he spreads much cheer throughout the home. We are looking forward to seeing him again very soon.
