Monty proves a hit at care home
Dani Gaston, manager at Kirkley Manor, hailed the “benefits” of bringing her pet dog with her to the nursing and care home. “It creates that sense of home for people used to having a pet at home,” she said. “People are able to interact with him and stroke him, which works well for reminiscing about pets that they have had. They might not be able to recall specific details of their lives but they know he is called Monty.
