Alpacas are a welcome surprise at a Leamington care home

TWO furry friends paid a visit to a Leamington care home.

Dante and Caya the alpacas paid a surprise visit to HMA Homewood. The pair were back by popular demand after visiting the home before.

And residents were delighted to see them, feeding them carrots.

Jackie Turner, activity coordinator said: “The alpacas have visited before and the residents love seeing them.

“Prior to them coming we encouraged the residents to sit in the lounge and then the alpacas arrived. Once they came in, the residents lit up and it was a great moment.

“They are really good pets, they are well behaved, and the residents really enjoy their company. Residents were feeding them carrots and they were casually roaming around the home which was great. We had them visit before and have been planning to arrange another visit for a while, but due to some circumstances it wasn’t possible.

“We promised the residents once it was safe to do so we would arrange the visit and since it happened that’s all they have been talking about.”
