Based in Bournemouth, Caring Canines is a voluntary group established in 2006 to make a real difference to their lives of people of all ages and abilities through dog assisted therapy. The charity’s four-legged friends are regular visitors at The Potteries, where they offer companionship to residents.
Zita Turner, home manager at The Potteries, said: “Caring Canines are a fantastic group of passionate volunteers who bring comfort and joy to residents when they bring their dogs along to the care home. We are all too aware the organisation is self-funded, and we wanted to make a contribution to say thank you and to help them in some way to continue the important work they do.”
Sue Dennett, founder of Caring Canines, added: “We were thrilled to hear The Potteries had chosen us as the beneficiaries of this donation. This gesture really demonstrates the trust and faith everyone at the care home has in Caring for Canines, which is almost as important to us as the money.”
Situated on York Road in Broadstone, The Potteries is a state-of-the-art care home designed to deliver the very best standards of care, and to enable residents to live active and fulfilled lives. The home offers a range of services including residential care, specialist dementia care and respite care.
