Snakes alive – it’s a travelling zoo!

May 4th 2012

Residents came face to face with lizards, snakes, a tarantula and even a giant centipede when a travelling zoo visited Hadrian House.

Our assistant manager Louise Knotts said: “Staff and residents were allowed to handle and pet the various animals, reptiles and other creatures and the visit was extremely popular.

We have had the zoo visit us before and we will definitely have them again as everyone enjoyed it so much.”

Step inside Hadrian House care home in Blaydon, near Gateshead, and you’ll love the bright and happy atmosphere. There are hens in the garden, a friendly cat called Charlie collects cuddles from the residents, and Albert, one of the care team, loves to sing. It all makes Hadrian House a care home with a difference.
