Touch
Animals provide much needed physical comfort that is sadly lacking from many of our day-to-day interactions. For those who may only encounter physical contact when faced with a medical procedure, the warmth of an animal can be a welcome change.

Conversation
Animal behaviour inspires questions and curiosity. Animals are intriguing to watch and provide plenty to talk about. They help bring a group together and spark new interactions.
c
Reminiscence
Animals prompt memories and storytelling. Reminiscing is highly beneficial for people living with dementia and animals tend to stir up all kinds of memories, from family histories to evacuation experiences.
a
Laughter
Animals draw people together in the moment, including those who might not otherwise interact with each other. There is always something to focus on with an animal around and their habits make us laugh and smile.
