Furry friend Marlow sparks memories at Sycamore and Poplars

Sycamore and Poplars Care Home residents have been enjoying the company of furry friend Marlow, who visits every week to spend time with them. There is always lots of competition for cuddles and resident Ruth in particular doesn’t like to let go of him!

Since Marlow has been coming to the home, it has sparked memories with a number of residents, who have recalled times that they had dogs as pets in their younger days.

Home Manager Karen Gilbert says:

"Marlow is so good and brings such pleasure to our residents. Here at Sycamores & Poplars we are very animal-friendly and lots of families bring in pets to see their relatives and other residents.

"These visits are a real talking point in the home and a reminder of the bond between people and their pets and what a comfort and pleasure this can be at all stages of life."
