Katherine, one of our receptionists, organised for her Mother, Angela, and nursery nurse colleague, Jeanette, to kindly bring in the 5 Ducklings one weekend. They were 3 days old, very soft and fluffy!
The residents so enjoyed holding or stroking them and then watching them swimming in the pool we set up. They caused many laughs especially if one escaped from a lap, getting to run around and had to be caught!
One of our managers, Carol, brought in her 2 young children, James and Faye, who loved watching the ducklings. James was brave enough to stroke them Faye was a little cautious.
For those residents who couldn’t or didn’t come down I took a duckling to them to see if they wanted to see one… which they all did. One lady was so excited and couldn’t believe she had a duckling in her room!
The whole event was a great success and the ducklings touched the heart of everyone.
