I had to share this great story on the benefits of pets and how they support independence and boost motivation. It’s such a brilliant initiative. Hen’s are amazing pets that are quirky, humourous, useful and full of personality!
In the UK, ‘Hensioners’ are taking to their gardens, unleashing their hen-thusiasm and sharing their newfound love of hen keeping with others. Older adults in care settings are getting a new lease on life through keeping hens.

I hope to see something like this happening in Australia too!
