Pet Therapy

At Leigh Place, we believe in the health and wellbeing benefits of consistent interaction with an animal through our Pet Therapy Program.
Pet therapy has the proven effect of elevating mood and decreasing stress for our residents.
Residents at Leigh Place are paid regular visits by Charlie, a friendly Spoodle, with a warm and engaging manner.
“Residents who choose to participate in pet therapy typically demonstrate reduced tension and fatigue, and more positive emotions and attitudes,” said Simone Lucidi, Lifestyle and Community Engagement Manager.
“The joy that Charlie brings to our residents is evident in their smiles,” he said.
Pet Therapy is just one of the many programs at Leigh Place targeting resident health and wellbeing, helping our residents to live their best lives.
