The newest member of our residential community is getting a lot of attention and bringing a joy to all who are getting to know her.
Puppet Therapy is recognised to bring joy to residents, helping them connect with memories and happy times. Residents who have memory loss are especially assisted by this therapy bringing back laughter and fun into their lives.
As quoted in the Accreditation Agency Magazine – “The Standard” (2009) “Residents have displayed great feedback from the sessions which produce a lot of fun and laughter, said Shelley. The puppets are particularly good at supporting residents during the sometimes tricky stage of the evening. Sometimes, puppets even follow residents to their room where they continue to interact with them.”
