"... Animals are such agreeable friends- they ask no questions, they pass no criticism..."
About the Stroke Rehab Dogs:
introduced Animal Assisted Interventions to the multi-disciplinary
therapy programme within neurological rehabilitation at a local hospital in 2004, Sallie witnessed first hand the positive effects that
occurred when stroke survivors were given the opportunity to interact
with dogs during therapy sessions. Working alongside Pets As Therapy
volunteer teams at the time, regular visits were arranged for those patients wishing
to participate, utilising the dog as a focus when working towards a
range of rehab goals.
by the limitations and restrictions that inevitably occur when working
in a large organisation, but empowered by the testimonials of
participating stroke survivors led to the vision, and consequent birth
of Stroke Rehab Dogs in 2013.
