Hevonen ilahdutti palvelutalon vanhuksia (Uutisvuoksi.fi) 23.6.2011
Just seeing and touching the horse was an amazing experience for the residents of Kauppakatu retirement home at Imatra. The idea was started from Suomenratsut association’s challenge to bring horses to greet the elderly in February 2011.
Retirement home manager Marja Sormunen was also happy to have a horse for a visit.
– It sounded really great. We have had dogs visiting before, but never a horse. Many of our residents come from the countryside, so seeing a horse may bring back lots of memories, which also helps reviving their memory.
