Residents at Care Home are Visited by Local Alpacas

Collingtree Park care home, in Northampton, was full of animal mischief on 19th January 2023 when a group of alpacas came to visit the home.

Residents at Collingtree Park were pleasantly surprised to see their new furry friends roaming around their home and gardens as Easton Way Farm paid a visit.

General Manager Tom Grabowski said:
“Our residents have really enjoyed their unusual visitors today. We knew that having the farm here would be a bit of fun for all our residents, especially as some find it difficult to go on many outings in our minibus. We are always looking for new activities for the residents and today we have seen the seen the enjoyment and the therapeutic influence animals can have on people.”

Residents were very excited by the Alpaca visit, as the gorgeous ‘Malibu, Coco and Aurora’ wandered around some commented: “As a child I used to love all the animals on the nearby farm. Today was very enjoyable and it was wonderful that the animals were free to roam amongst us. They’re so fluffy, it’s made my day!”
