Caring canine visits The Magna

Residents at The Magna Care Centre are lucky enough to have a caring canine visit them on a monthly basis. Holly, an energetic, friendly and loveable spaniel visits residents at the care home with her owner, Katie and often entertains residents with tricks.

Holly and Katie have been visiting residents at The Magna for several years and both are very well loved. Their visit always begins in the main lounge, saying ‘hello’ to everyone, followed by a tour of the home and visiting other relatives who wish to see them.

Holly is a very food orientated dog and is happy to perform to residents to gain a treat. She has been known to jump over walking sticks propped up on books in the anticipation of a treat, which is very well received and always get resident’s smiling and laughing! Holly is also able to sit, lay down, shake a paw and loves to be stroked.

“We all love having Holly and Katie visit us at The Magna” said Heidi Williams, Home Manager: “both are well loved and well known amongst residents. Holly is such an energetic dog who brings smiles to our resident’s faces, even the ones who met her a long time ago. We love having her here and I know a lot of our residents wish she was a permanent fixture and this was her permanent home!”

Katie, Holly’s owner, also kindly donates much of her spare time to the care home, assisting with outings, events, fetes and special parties, which residents and staff are extremely grateful for. “It’s great having Katie here so often,” commented Heidi Williams, Home Manager: “We appreciate all she does for the home and for our residents, many of which love spending time with her.”

The Magna Care Centre is a stunning purpose-built Care Centre providing residential and specialist nursing care for up to 63 elderly residents.
