Pair of Furry Friends Visit Leamington Spa Based Home

Residents at a Leamington Spa based care home had a welcome surprise as two Alpacas visited them.

Dante and Caya from the Alpaca Pals, who offer up close and personal alpaca experience visited MHA Homewood.

The pair spent some time in the home, which offers personalised residential care for 50 residents.

Residents gave the Alpacas carrots, as they made their way through the home and made stops at some bedrooms.

Jackie Turner, activity coordinator said:
“The Alpacas have visited before and the residents love seeing them.

“Prior to them coming we encouraged the residents to sit in the lounge and then the Alpacas arrived.

“Once they came in, the residents lit up and it was a great moment.

“They are really good pets, they are well behaved, and the residents really enjoy their company.

“Residents were feeding them carrots and they were casually roaming around the home which was great.

“We had them visit before and have been planning to arrange another visit for a while, but due to some circumstances it wasn’t possible.

“We promised the residents once it was safe to do so we would arrange the visit and since it happened that’s all they have been talking about.”
