Dog Therapy Program

The Brotherhood of St Laurence is a nonprofit organisation with aged care homes throughout Australia.

In 2019 we are proud to announce that Bones & Harmony are providing a free Therapy Dog Program to Brotherhood of St Laurence age care homes, every Thursday. Our aim is to offer companionship and unconditional love, through our canine guests.

Elderly people in aged care homes often experience social isolation and a lack of companionship. All things that therapy dogs can help alleviate!

Research supports what we as dog parents all know. That dogs have the ability to boost health and general well-being, improving people’s emotional, social and cognitive abilities.

We are so pleased to be able to announce this partnership, thanks to our wonderful paw-parents. Stay updated on our new Therapy Dogs program via Instagram each Thursday.
