National Pet Day 2024

Our residents celebrate National Pet Day with furry companions bringing joy to our care homes!

National Pet Day this year reminded our homes of the invaluable presence our furry friends can bring. The day was celebrated with nursing home pet therapy sessions and our team and resident’s loved ones bringing in their pets for a visit. Our homes cherish the positive impact animals have on the well-being of our residents.

Before coming to stay with us, many of our residents had a cherished pet companion back at home that they miss dearly. To bring that bit of comfort and companionship back into our resident’s hearts laps, many of our homes organise pet therapy and specialist animal visits. Residents said that National Pet Day allowed them to ‘reminisce about when we had pets of our own’.
