ABOUT THE PROGRAM
Dayspring’s mobile Assisted Living and Nursing Home program is about cheering up others, putting a smile on a resident’s face, and letting them tell us “their story!”
We love this part of our program format!! It has been very rewarding! This Program is dedicated to bringing happiness, healing, rehabilitation, and comfort to the people through The Equine-Assisted Therapies & Activities Program, using our beautiful miniature horse, “Star-Struck Marigold!” Marigold has provided smiles, laughter and love, to our assisted-living centers, nursing homes, local elementary schools, and other special groups.
According to the Mayo Clinic, “Animal-assisted therapy can significantly reduce pain, anxiety, depression, and fatigue in people with a range of health problems.” Our goal at Dayspring is to improve the mental, physical, social, and emotional well-being of those who are in need! Our team works tirelessly developing programs that result in meaningful change and we believe that change is what leads step by step into a brighter future.
