Paws for Therapy at Castle View

Local pet therapists, Isla and Ben Scott, regularly visit the residents at Castle View Nursing Home with their beautiful border collies – Wally and Nelly.

The pair have been visiting residents at the home on a weekly basis to provide much appreciated pet therapy services to the residents in the home.

Annie Bairstow, Matron at Castle View, said: “We’re very grateful to Isla and Ben, and to Wally and Nelly, for taking the time to come and see us.

“Pet therapy provides a great opportunity to provide companionship and comfort for our residents, as well as invaluable sensory stimulation for our residents who are living with some form of dementia.”

Isla and Ben are part of “Paws for Therapy”, an Isle of Man registered charity that formed in 2007. All visits undertaken by the charity are carried out by local volunteers, and their friendly (temperament tested and vaccinated) pets.

You can find out more about Castle View in Peel, on the Isle of Man, on the home’s webpage.
