Hillside Lodge Care Home in Berwick-upon-Tweed welcomed some very unusual visitors to their home recently - owls, snakes and pet rats!
Vanessa Pepper, Home Manager at Hillside Lodge Care Home said, â€œAll our residents thorough enjoyed their time with the animals and got to hold and touch them.
"As you can see from this photo, 88 year old Isabelle Hewit and 72 year old Elizabeth Dryden weren't afraid of this beautiful owl at all but he does look very relaxed there! I hope to welcome many more animals to our home very soon."
Our team at Hillside Lodge Care Home provides residential care for people who need a little help with daily tasks like washing, dressing and eating, along with general nursing care for people with more complex medical conditions.
We also offer respite care to give family or friends a well-earned break and intermediate care as an alternative to a hospital stay.
