Being close to nature helps make everyday life more fulfilling. That’s why CityBridge supports the hospital’s active farm and garden program. Here, residents can simply enjoy the company of people-friendly goats, sheep, pigs, ducks, cats, guinea pigs, rabbits and geese.
Animal-Assisted Therapy is offered as a formal therapeutic service for some for residents but for anyone who likes animals, the farm is a soothing oasis of happiness and peace. Residents looking for a little retreat find the farm a place of discovery and contentment. Some simply enjoy visiting with the cats and ducks, reminiscing and remembering. Others like to pet a rabbit’s soft fur for relaxed sensory stimulation.
CityBridge is proud to keep the farm program running by funding the costs of veterinary services and animal feed.
