Hulcott Residents experience Wild Science

We like to try all sorts of different activities at Hulcott in Aylesbury and our latest was no exception. Our residents were treated to an afternoon with a difference when Wild Science brought along some of their animals for us to get up close to and see, touch, learn new and interesting facts and enjoy chatting about.

The animals they brought with them included a gecko, snake, guinea pig, millipede and gerbil.

The afternoon was fun filled with the residents enjoying holding all of the animals, learning all about them and experiencing some that they would never have had the chance to get up close to, even enjoying holding the snake and the millipede. There were lots of animated discussions both before and after the session and big smiles.

For some it was a great new experience and as you can see from the picture, Ada really enjoyed holding the snake!

At Hulcott, we know the benefits of Animal Therapy are well documented. Simple interactions such as stroking is beneficial to people of all ages and is the ideal way for residents who may be less mobile to interact with animals and benefit from a new and unique experience.
