Nursing Home Residents with Alzheimer’s Enjoy Aviary

A senior living community in Easton, Maryland celebrated the addition of two new aviaries, one in assisted living and another in the memory care neighborhood. The aviaries already have made a significant impact on the quality of life for the seniors and are very therapeutic for seniors with Alzheimer’s.

The community pets and birds often provide animal-assisted therapy which enhances the lives of residents and keeps the residents’ attention longer than music.
