Jigsaw puzzles are not only fun but they are great for everyone’s brain! Puzzles provide excellent brain training and improve co-ordination, they also develop your abilities to reason, analyse and sequence logical thought processes and problem solving skills.

Aurrum Wyoming residents had a great time being visited by Foxy, Tex, Bobby & Tash recently. Pet Therapy is one of our most loved activities we offer at all Aurrum care homes across NSW & VIC. Research has revealed many benefits to pet therapy such as decreased blood pressure and stress, improved communication, reminiscence and motor skills. Pets who visit often provide a range of social and individual benefits.

Did you know that people who have pets …

• Visit the doctors less often and use less medication
• On average, they have lower cholesterol and lower blood pressure
• Recover more quickly from illness and surgery and deal better with stress
• Are less likely to be lonely
