Farm Animals Delight at Any Age

on the Tuesday, September 17, 2019

On Friday 6 September, residents of Resthaven Westbourne Park at 30 Sussex Terrace, Westbourne Park, were delighted to host the ‘Old McDonald’s Farm’ petting zoo.

Lifestyle Coordinator, Verona Rix, says, "Around fifty residents joined us in the lounge (due to the cold weather), where they were able to touch and hold a variety of small farm animals, including goats, rabbits, guinea pigs, ducks, and chickens."

"Everyone loved watching and patting the adorable animals."

The visit formed part of the Resthaven Westbourne Park annual 'Show Week' celebrations, giving residents the opportunity to reminisce about attending the Royal Adelaide Show themselves as children.

Residents shared fond memories of what the Show was like when they were young, and how much is has changed.

One thing that hasn’t changed is the joy that animals bring, no matter your age!

Resthaven Westbourne Park is just one of Resthaven’s twelve high quality residential aged care homes. Resthaven provides aged care services across metropolitan Adelaide and throughout the Adelaide Hills, Murraylands, Riverland, lower Barossa, Fleurieu Peninsula, and the Limestone Coast.
