Residents enjoy Guinea Pig cuddles at Avonmead

Introducing the two furry little friends of Avonmead Care Home in Devizes – each Friday the residents have ‘Guinea Pig cuddle time’ where they are joined by the animals for an hour of snuggles and fun.

The home decided to get the Guinea Pigs for the residents as they knew how beneficial pets can be for them, and it also gives Avonmead a real sense of home for everyone. The residents really enjoy having cuddle time with the pets and look forward to it each week.

Jayne, Personal Activities Leader, told us “The Guinea Pigs are a great addition to Avonmead – we all love them and they are lovely little characters. The residents love to have cuddles with them; some have had Guinea Pigs as pets before so it’s familiar for them”.
