They’re known as man’s best friend and that is what Stanley the therapy dog is for all the residents at Carinity Cedarbrook Aged Care community.
Carinity Cedarbrook’s Diversional Therapist, Julianne, explains 4 year old Stanley was her fathers dog and after her father passed away she took care of Stanley taking him into work with her.
“I thought he’d make a great therapy dog cause he’s little and he’s just so attached to all the residents,” she said.
Julianne explains each of the residents have little treats and food for him when he visits.
“It adds a little speciality into their life… he’s become a real star of Cedarbrook” Julianne said.
The residents love Stanley’s calming and caring nature and continues to make regular visits to all the residents.
