Rudolph Visits Local Care Home

There was huge excitement at Hugh Myddelton House as Rudolf Santa’s reindeer came by to visit the residents ahead of their big night delivering presents on Christmas Eve.

Staff and residents at Barchester’s Hugh Myddelton House care home, in Southgate, had a wonderful time learning about the very friendly reindeer with Kelly and Des from Performing Pets, finding out about his habits and what he likes to eat. Several of the residents got to feed the reindeer some of his favourite treats. Reindeers are natural foragers and would normally eat moss, ferns, grasses and leaves so a carrot is a rare treat for reindeer in the wild.

General Manager, Ramona Stanciu said: “We had the best time with the reindeer, he is such gorgeous creature. Our residents loved spending time with him, I do hope he will come back to visit us soon.”

John, resident at Hugh Myddelton House said: “It was so lovely to see the reindeer and get to stroke him, he was absolutely beautiful. We all loved feeding him carrots, which he devoured! I hope we haven’t made him too fat to take off on Christmas Eve!”
