Janine Lynch is an Enrolled Nurse who works with May Shaw at our Scottsdale site. Janine is also a register breeder of Border Collie’s and can often be seen bringing new puppies to brighten the day of the residents.
To be able to see the changes in their faces and the interaction of some who are often withdrawn and do not communicate, these residents will open up and become enthusiastic with the puppies sitting on their knees.
To have activities like this is very therapeutic to the mental welfare of our residents. The staff also hugely benefit as they also see the changes in the residents.
