HenPower – Nursing Home Chickens

I love how people everywhere are working to find new ways in keeping our seniors involved in their communities and enriching their lives.

“HenPower is a creative ageing and animal therapy program that incorporates creative activities and art with keeping chooks. HenPower is a unique program that is at the heart of many of our care homes, bringing life, laughter and great friendships to our residents, staff, families and visitors.

HenPower isn’t just for residents of our homes, the program is at its very best when family members, local schools and the wider community are involved. Many of our homes include local schools and kindergartens in their HenPower program and creative activities.

HenPower was developed by UK organisation, Equal Arts. Whiddon are the first provider to offer HenPower in Australia and won a Better Practice Award in 2016 for our HenPower trial.”
