O’Reilly Retriever and Ash Steen visited the Emmanuel Retirement Home on 9 May 2017, and were greeted by very friendly and smiling faces on arrival. Accompanied by Rose Chamberlain, our faithful volunteer, we walked into a full lounge with almost all their residents present ready and waiting to hear about the services offered by GDA.
After the GDA DVD had been screened and some more information was exchanged with Pieter as the guest speaker, everyone had the opportunity to come and greet the two dogs – who behaved themselves very well!
A highlight for several residents was the visit by Ash and O’Reilly to their private wards, when the dogs were invited to walk through the frail care section. The four-footed friends were received with huge smiles and friendliness all over!
A huge word of thanks to Niekie and Carla from the Home who made sure that we were well looked after and for making all the arrangements to make this a very special day!
