Therapy and care donkeys

Donkeys provide care and therapy

Donkeys are vital contributors to therapy and care, whether for those suffering mental health, negative issues or dementia and Alzheimer’s disease.  There are so many wonderful examples of the benefit that they bring and we would love to use these pages to celebrate what they do.  We know that they ease typical symptoms such as anxiety, agitation, irritability, depression and loneliness.

Making memories:

Liz Barrett and Briony Wild visited a care home and took these wonderful photos of donkeys and residents:


Liz Harris shows these touching pictures of her mother, struggling with dementia at the time, meeting Jake one of Liz’s new guardian donkeys. Who’s being the guardian in this case, I wonder?
