Owls About That Then! Feathered Friends Visit Walton Manor

Residents Louisa Delacruz (L) and Ellen Sayonas (R) get friendly with the beautiful birds.

RESIDENTS of Walton Manor care home in Liverpool welcomed some feathered friends for the day, enjoying a therapeutic owl show.

The magnificent birds of prey arrived at the care home for an animal therapy session in the afternoon and stayed for a couple of hours. Residents fed and petted the owls, which enjoy the attention. The staff and residents all were all impressed with how soft owls' feathers can be! The pet therapy session proved to be a hit with everyone at the home.

Animal interaction is part of a range of therapeutic activities that are offered to residents at Walton Manor, including scent reminisce therapy, nostalgia cafés and music. Animal therapy is recognised as an effective therapy for people living with dementia, since spending time with animals can improve both physical and mental wellbeing by encouraging communication.

Walton Manor is part of Embrace, providing tailored care and support for older people. The home provides person centred care identifying people's goals and ambitions and focusing on enablement and the promotion of personal dignity.

Marina Moore, Activities Coordinator at Walton Manor, commented:- "The owls' visit was fantastic fun! To be able to see such interesting and beautiful birds up close and personal was great.  A fantastic time was enjoyed by all I we would recommend this activity for all of our care homes.  Many of the residents are big fans of nature and wildlife so the owls' visit was a real treat; we look forward to having our feathered friends visit again in the future!"

Walton Manor, part of Embrace, provides personalised nursing, residential and dementia care for older people.
