Residents at Cranmer Court Care Home are always delighted when they welcome a variety of animals to the home. They really love these visits as part of a pet therapy programme.
The last visit saw a number of small animals including rabbits and guinea pigs, as well as a rather well-dressed pony! Our residents thoroughly enjoy these types of visits, and they are always a hit with everyone involved!
