Pet Therapy

Our Pet Therapy Program is favoured by many! Our program provides our residents with the opportunity to spend time with animals, bringing joy and companionship to those who need it most.

For many of our residents, the companionship of a pet can be incredibly therapeutic. Animals provide warmth and comfort, and help to reduce stress, anxiety and loneliness. Our Pet Therapy Program is designed to encourage engagement, improve mood and stimulate conversation. We have a range of visiting or electronic animals on site, including cats, dogs, birds and bunnies, which have been professionally trained to ensure a safe and enjoyable experience.

Our program is especially beneficial to those suffering from dementia. Studies have shown that animals can help to reduce agitation and wandering, while also providing social and emotional support. The presence of animals has also been known to spark memories, which can be a great source of comfort and joy. At Bethel Aged Care, we believe that pet therapy can have a positive effect on the mental and physical well-being of our residents. We are committed to providing a safe, supportive and enjoyable environment for all those who take part in our program.


Entertainment

At Bethel Aged Care, we believe that life should be celebrated and enjoyed. That’s why we host weekly live entertainment events for our residents. Every week, we invite a visiting entertainer to perform at our facility and provide a happy hour with special event food and drinks. Our live entertainment program provides a great way for our residents to socialise and engage with one another while enjoying music, laughter, and fun.

Not only is it enjoyable, but it also has a great impact on our residents’ mental and physical health. By engaging in social activities, residents enjoy improved mental alertness and physical well-being. At Bethel Aged Care, we strive to create an environment that’s both enjoyable and beneficial for our residents. Our live entertainment program is just one way we do this.


Cultural Club

Hello, Ciao, Geia, Bongu, Zdravo, this is our Cultural Club Program!

We offer a unique opportunity for our residents to connect with one another on a deeper level. Our weekly coffee clubs give our residents the chance to come together to enjoy a cup of coffee and share in conversations that span their native language, culture, and experiences.

For many of our residents, it provides a much-needed time of companionship and human connection that helps to keep them engaged and involved in their community.
