Animal Therapy for all Homes across the Yorkare Group

Each care home across the Yorkare portfolio, have received a special visit from the Macaws Zeus, Inca and Aurora over the last month as part of the ‘Macaws on Tour’ activity, that had been arranged to provide a special interactive animal therapy session for all residents and employees to enjoy.

These special activities are all part of the Yorkare 3 Peaks strategy to provide continuous 1. Health 2. Happiness 3. Wellbeing for all residents and employees.

The residents have been handling, feeding, talking and stroking each of the birds, and has been a well loved activity by all.

A special thank you to Tony the handler, and the beautiful intelligent Macaws, Zeus, Inca and Aurora of ‘Parrots and Pirates’ www.parrotsandpirates.co.uk
