PAT dog visits Moorlands

Misty is our new PAT dog and has been visiting Moorlands Nursing Home in Lightwater for the last 2 – 3 months. 

Pets as therapy (PAT) is a charity with volunteers who work with their own pets, to bring joy, comfort and companionship to many individuals who appreciate being able to touch and stroke a friendly animal. The documented benefits of interaction with pets are mental, emotional and even physical.

The level of joy she brings to our residents can’t be measured but it is noticeable how an anxious or troubled resident can become calm and peaceful when Misty comes along.

She puts smiles on a lot of faces and is a very welcome visitor at Moorlands, and tends to be a talking point for some time after.

At Moorlands we provide residential and nursing care for up to 40 elderly residents in a bright and homely environment.

If you would like to find out more about our events and life at Moorlands or to arrange a visit, please contact us on 0808 223 5526 or email moorlands@CaringHomes.org.

Coronavirus (COVID-19) Update
To Whom it may concern,

RE: A message from the CEO and Clinical Director

At Caring Homes we are following the latest Government advice and stopping visitors to all our homes, except for essential visits by healthcare professionals who will be required to adhere to strict protocols.

We understand that this may be very difficult for families but we are clear in our duty to ensure we protect the health, safety and wellbeing of our Residents and Colleagues as our top priority.

We want you to know that you can contact your loved ones through calls, emails, video and social media and we will support our Residents to view any messages you send over. We are confident that the teams in our homes are doing all they can to ensure that life remains as comfortable and sociable as possible. There will be a full programme of activities delivered by our in-house health and wellbeing teams.

We hope you will understand and support these actions and any further subsequent measures we might need to put in place.

Yours sincerely
