FENCE is now offering a new program for participants with early-onset dementia, MCI (mild cognitive impairment), and Parkinson’s. E.A.S.E (Equine Assisted Senior Engagement) is a four-week program with Spring and Fall sessions.  

The goal of this program is to inspire connection and improve the lives of those impacted by dementia, MCI, and Parkinson’s through equine engagement.  

The program focuses on a sensory experience for each student while creating a sense of awareness, confidence, and social connection within a structured and supervised environment. It takes place at Rosemary’s Barn, where participants will spend time and connect with equine animals and other therapy pets in a beautiful, natural setting.
