Care Homes and Nursing Homes

Jelani the African Eagle Owl at Care Home

Zoo2U find experiences with the elderly and/or those with special educational needs a really rewarding experience that brings a fantastic array of different benefits to everyone.

A Sensory Experience

All of the animals are very friendly and happy to be handled which makes a Zoo2U visit a very sensory experience. Discover the different textures of fur, feathers, spikes, shells and scales whilst meeting the mammals, birds and reptiles.

Animals as therapy and adult enrichment

Zoo2U animals are for the education and enjoyment of all ages, with adults benefitting hugely from a Zoo2U visit. They often visit care homes for the elderly where many benefits are realised from this fun and interactive activity which can be enjoyed by all ages and abilities.


Recent programmes to tackle dementia include ‘Green Care’ which involves sufferers working on farms and being closely involved with the care of animals. This is clearly not an option for all dementia patients however a visit from Zoo2U could be the next best thing. Interacting with the animals has been shown to reduce boredom, agitation and anxiety as well as encourage communication and socialisation. Animals can also help to improve memory as the experience will be significantly different from day to day living and can also help some patients to recollect pets that they have owned in the past.

Zoo2U can tailor each package to meet your requirements..
