It’s widely known that the presence of animals has a multitude of benefits for both seniors and children. Researchers have discovered that animal-human interaction can improve a person’s social, emotional, and physical functioning. This makes the Barn Babies® pet therapy program perfect for those in a nursing home, assisted living or with disabilities. At Barn Babies®, we provide our pet therapy services to nursing homes in the Massachusetts and Rhode Island areas. Utilizing our baby animals as a form of treatment can increase the resident’s mood and lower anxiety levels. Our compassionate staff will interact with the residents and animals to create a truly entertaining and fun environment.
We bring approximately 20 babies to assure group participation. This includes bunnies, chicks or ducklings, a diapered baby goat or lamb, little potbellied pig, kittens and puppies. Our babies will bring both comfort and affection to the residents; contact us today for more information!
Rates start at $300/hr. and a travel fee may apply.**
**Pet therapy rates are valid on weekdays, January-April & September-December. For visits May-August please request our Summer rates.
