Zoolab visits The Pines

Our residents and staff are really pleased to have Zoolab visit the home on a regular basis. Zoolab identifies itself as the UK’s number 1 animal handling experience, offering residents the chance to hold a variety of animals, including chameleons and rats!

The purpose of Zoolab is to bring people closer to nature, and stimulate an interest in science, nature and learning. All the residents at The Pines enjoy regular visits from the Zoolab team and the opportunity to hold some unusual creatures.

“This is a great opportunity for our residents to do something a little ‘different’ and we appreciate the Zoolab team coming to The Pines” says Kay Wainwright, Home Manager: “Mental wellbeing and stimulation is of the upmost importance to us at The Pines. Handling a variety of creatures is a great, interesting and interactive sensory experience for those living here, and the differences in the touch and feeling of the animals is a fantastic, tactile experience.”

Zoolab have been visiting The Pines care home in Putney for a couple of years and are always welcomed by residents and staff. A diverse and varied activities provision within the home means there is something for everyone. Residents at The Pines benefit from a broad and stimulating range of activities.

The Pines care home in Putney provides specialist residential and nursing care for up to 42 elderly people. The dedicated care team work closely with residents and their loved ones to provide the highest quality of specialist care.
