Ponies visit Strathview

In August the residents at Strathview Care Home in Auchtermuchty welcomed Elaine and John to Strathview with a couple of very special visitors – Edwardo and Wilson.

Residents, staff, visitors, family and even district nurses enjoyed the visit and personally I was surprised at how long they stayed with us and how much time and attention John and Elaine showed to each and every one of our residents.

More importantly the ponies were very well behaved – they were very happy to walk about and be patted and kissed and cuddled by all of our residents that wanted to, with not a care in the world! I am surprised Wilson left at all, with one of our residents showing him where her room was and wanting him to snuggle up on her pillow for the night.

We are thinking of ideas for future special guests, and I am sure these two will be back soon, by demand!

Strathview provides specialist residential and dementia care in a purpose built environment for up to 25 elderly people.
