Baby goats visit residents in Raleigh Urunga17 May 2021
Our residents and staff in our aged care villages love having visitors, and sometimes those guests can be a little bit unique.
One of our wonderful staff members at RFBI Raleigh Urunga Masonic Village recently brought two of their two-week-old baby goats into the village for the resident’s enjoyment. And wow, did the kids bring a smile to our resident’s faces.
Residents loved cuddling Bubbles and Chester and it was a wonderful conversation starter between our Raleigh community members, as well as between the older generation and the younger generation who often drop in for a visit.
Bringing animals into our villages is something we are passionate about, as it is great for the wellbeing of our residents, brings them together with nature, and is an exciting way to encourage staff and residents alike to share stories from their past in relation to the experience.
