#30DaysWild at Springhill Care Home

Recently Springhill Care Home in Accrington enjoyed a nature themed art session as part of the #30dayswild project and many of their residents thoroughly enjoy taking time together to be creative.

In this session a member of the Lifestyle team shared a Flower Fairies book which was full of beautiful illustrations and poetry.

Everyone agreed the session was very relaxing and enjoyable.


Birch Green Care Home’s own ‘safari’

on .

Birch Green Care Home’s residents got up-close-and-personal with a range of animals during a visit recently by Home Safari.


The organisation offers animal-assisted therapy sessions and visited Birch Green in Skelmersdale with creatures including Jethro the Skunk, who was as popular as always, and Ziggy the Gecko.


Kay, one of our staff members, has always wanted a skunk and had the honour of taking him to visit all our ladies and gentlemen.


Betty, the Bearded Dragon, was also very popular, and Christine, one of our residents, said his skin felt ‘really funny’ as she gave him a stroke.


The oldest animal, 17-year-old Fred the Tortoise, was quite happy walking around the lounge.


Thanks to everyone for visiting, we can’t wait to see you again soon.

Zoolabs inspires at Springhill Care Home

Springhill Care Home in Accrington was visited by a range of creatures recently.


The home played host to a visit by the Zoolabs organisation, which brought along animals including a snail, frog, tortoise, rats, a tarantula and snake.


It was a thoroughly interesting afternoon and proved very popular, with residents given the chance to look at and handle the different creatures. One told us: “I love it when we get to come along and we learn something new as well.”


We’re all looking forward to Zoolab’s next visit in the Autumn.
