Our Carer Support Worker, Fiona Moore, had a surprise visit from Arwen the pet therapy dog, during her weekly drop in surgery at Ward 3 of the Larkfield Unit.

Arwen and her owner, Willie, are volunteers from the organisation, Pets As Therapy Scotland, who give up their time to support individuals with additional support needs.

Although Arwen is specialised in supporting children specifically with autism, her owner Willie regularly volunteers his time to visit the patients at the Larkfield Unit and Orchard View as he wants to give something back to the hospital who cared for his mother before she passed away.
