Pet friendly care services
Pets are often important to people who need domiciliary care and support. This is likely to be even more so for people who are less mobile or who are more isolated.
Evidence from studies tells us that the animal-human emotional bond brings significant emotional and social benefits. Caring for a pet provides purpose, a routine and consistency to many people’s lives. Pets help people to feel safe and secure. They provide company and can support grieving adults and children, so that symptoms of depression are reduced. Touch is crucial to well-being. Stroking a pet has been proved to have a calming and relaxing effect, even producing physiological effects such as lowered blood pressure.
If you have a pet, as part of our domiciliary care service we will try and match you to a care assistant who also enjoys and understands animals. You will be able to share the pleasure of your special pet together.
*Not all Bluebird Care offices provide this service. Please check with your local office if this service is available.
