Toelichting (Engels) The inspiration for the HENPOWER programme rested in the experiences of staff and service users of a residential care home with hen-keeping and its associated activities. Residents found that interacting with the hens was enjoyable and was a stimulus for social interaction with others involved in this activity. The male residents reported that they had kept hens when they were younger, thus this form of human – animal interaction was something that was familiar and an inherent part of their personal history. It was notable that the male residents were drawn to the hens and got involved in looking after the hens. The staff noted that the majority of the resident population was female and many of the activities that were arranged in the home tended to be activities that were popular amongst the female residents. Rarely had the men engaged with the crafts, music and dance activities. These observations led the programme developers to reflect on the relevance of hen-keeping in care settings beyond this situation to older men living in other settings such as sheltered housing or alone in their own home.
