Northcott House – Dan the Donkey

Britain is considered a nation of animal lovers, so why should this be any different if you live in a Care or Nursing  home?

A dog’s silly antics and wagging tail or a cat purring on one’s lap can raise a smile, or relax anyone, regardless of age or ailments.

However, sometimes we like to offer our residents the opportunity to interact with far more unusual animals than household pets!

Meet Dan the donkey.

Dan was a great success when he trotted down the hallways of the home and into the lounge to meet some of our residents and staff.

Interesting factoid – Dan has been trained to use the lift (but not on his own).
