Residents at HC-One’s Westwood Lodge care home enjoyed celebrating ‘National love your pet day’ in honour of the Colleagues and Relatives at the home who have pets.
Relatives enjoy regularly bringing their dogs into the home, including Mylo the Shitzhu, who belongs to a Resident at the home and visits each day. Colleagues enjoy also bringing their dogs into the home for Residents to see, including those that have visited since they were a puppy.
Residents enjoy seeing the animals as they enjoy giving them cuddles during each visit, feeding them treats and playing with their toys with them.
Lorraine Young, home manager, commented: “Animals are so important here at Westwood Lodge, although we don’t have any pets at the home, we enjoy having Relatives and Colleagues bring their pets to see us here.”
