Spring is in the air at Brook Court

April 17 2019

Spring has certainly sprung for residents at Brook Court after they received a special visit from some little lambs. 

In order to awaken the senses and encourage conversation between residents, the team at Brook Court, organised for the special visitors from a local farm to spend time with residents in the lead up to Easter. 

The lambs were taken on a tour of the care home’s garden and even popped in to visit residents in their rooms to ensure no one missed out on the special visit. 

Home manager at Brook Court, Gill Pratt, said: “Everyone had a spring in their step after the lambs spent time with residents here at Brook Court. The visit created a lot of excitement among the residents and Care UK team.

“Petting animals and being in their company has proven therapeutic benefits, particularly for those living with dementia, as it can reduce anxiety, release calming endorphins, and decrease feelings of loneliness. You could see from the residents’ reactions just how engaged they were when given the opportunity to get close to such lovely, affectionate animals.”
