Touch the Wings

It is a unique form of animal assisted therapy with the positive effect of a bird of prey or owl on human health being used. The owl at the bedside or in the bed of the user can pull the person out of lethargy, transmits energy, helps in the development or maintenance of fine motor skills. (Photos taken at care homes run by the Diaconia of the Evangelical Church of Czech Brethren in Central Bohemia and mostly taking care of elderly clients suffering from dementia.)
