Harvey, Helen and Teddy

Harvey, Helen and Teddy

Resident Harvey and Care Assistant Helen share a special bond together at The Regency Care Home in Whitefield, Manchester.

They love to have a natter throughout the day and bounce off each other’s humour. Talking about living at the home, Harvey says the atmosphere exceeded his expectations, having visited other care homes before and loves feeling like part of “one big family”.

Harvey also enjoys regular visits from his wife and dog Teddy who come to the home several times a week. Everyone from the residents to our colleagues and other visitors enjoy Teddy’s company and have got to know him.

Harvey says: “Everybody seems to benefit from having Teddy around and many love to stroke him”.
