Residents of Brooklands, Derry / Londonderry enjoyed a trip to the garden for fresh air and a relaxing stroll. We also received a visit from our favourite four-legged friend, Daisy! Daisy is a beloved and frequent visitor who playfully interacts and loves the cuddles and attention she receives. The calming nature of a pet has been seen to increase levels of Oxytocin and decreases the production of Cortisol. These positive health effects don’t stop at stress-relief, it is also believed that pet therapy can have a drastic effect on blood pressure. Thank you Daisy, not just for bringing a calming effect but for bringing smiles to Residents’ faces.
