Runwood Homes receives special visit from local guide dogs association on International Dog Day
Residents, family and team members at Lower Meadow care home in Stratford upon Avon, operated by Runwood Homes, received a special visit from The Guide Dogs for the Blind Association on International Dog Day.
The session was hosted by representatives from the charity, who brought their local guide dog, Zelda, to meet the residents.
During the highly informative session, residents learnt the history of guide dogs and how the association can assist clients who are visually impaired.
At Runwood Homes, the month of August celebrated the positive and therapeutic value of animals, with numerous visits from a variety of different animals, across multiple sites.
Deputy Manager at Lower Meadow, Jasmine, commented on the day:
“We are very lucky at Lower Meadow that we have the facilities to host and support local charities. The residents thoroughly enjoyed the opportunity to ask questions and fuss over Zelda at the end of the session. The residents were each given a couple of pounds to pop into the donation box to support The Guide Dogs Association.”
