Holistic Pet Care

Embracing the therapeutic and emotional benefits of pet ownership, Bendigo Nursing Home proudly offers tailored pet care assistance that recognises the unique bond between residents and their beloved companions. We understand the positive impact that furry friends can have on overall well-being, and our commitment extends to accommodating residents' wishes for pet ownership.

Guided Pet Ownership Approach

At Bendigo Nursing Home, we acknowledge the significance of pet companionship and strive to create an environment where residents can experience the joy and comfort that comes with having a furry friend. Our approach to pet ownership is guided by the following principles:

  • Managerial Consideration: Every request for pet ownership is individually considered by our manager, who conducts a thorough suitability and risk assessment. This ensures that each decision aligns with the well-being of both the resident and the prospective pet.

  • Final Decision Authority: The manager holds the responsibility for all decisions regarding the acceptance of pets into our home. Their expertise and understanding of the unique dynamics involved in pet care contribute to a final decision that prioritises the safety and happiness of our residents.

Elaborated Pet Care Assistance: Our comprehensive pet care assistance includes:

  • Feeding: Residents are supported in ensuring their pets receive nutritious and timely meals, promoting the health and vitality of their animal companions.

  • Grooming: Our residents receive assistance with grooming activities, ensuring the cleanliness and well-being of their pets. This includes regular brushing, bathing, and other grooming needs.

  • Handling: We recognise the importance of safe and gentle handling. Residents are provided with assistance in handling their pets, fostering a positive and stress-free interaction between residents and their animal companions.

Therapeutic Benefits of Pet Ownership: Pet ownership at Bendigo Nursing Home is not just about companionship; it's a holistic approach that acknowledges the therapeutic benefits pets bring which includes:

  1. Emotional Well-being: The joy and comfort of having a pet contribute to improved emotional well-being, reducing feelings of loneliness and fostering a positive outlook.

  2. Social Interaction: Pets serve as wonderful companions, promoting social interaction among residents and creating a sense of community within our home.

  3. Physical Activity: The responsibilities of pet care, including feeding and grooming, encourage physical activity, benefiting both residents and their pets.

At Bendigo Nursing Home, we invite residents to experience the profound benefits of pet companionship in a supportive and caring environment. Contact us today to explore how our personalised approach to pet care can enhance your loved one's well-being.
