Residents at Euxton Park Care Home in Chorley spent the afternoon getting up close and personal with some beautiful birds of paradise.
Debra Banks, Home Manager, said: “We welcomed in the birds as part of our Pet Therapy programme and the residents really enjoyed it. They were able to hold and stroke the birds, and discover more about them. Some of our residents even channelled their inner pirate as they allowed the parrots to sit on their shoulder. I think it’s safe to say that we’ll be welcoming the birds back in the future.”
