Puppy power for Stansted Mountfitchet care home

Home news

Mountfitchet House care home in Stansted Mountfitchet have had a new furry member of the team join them in the form of 5 month old, Australian Labradoodle Poppy. 

Poppy is slowly being introduced to the home two to three days per week for a couple of hours at a time and as she gets older it is hoped that she will come in and spend more time with residents who want to be around a pet throughout their day.

Allison Squires, home manager said “Poppy is very playful and lively so the introductions are currently going very slowly. Pets such as dogs can provide affection and comfort to people so we really wanted Poppy to join the team. She is going down really well with the residents, their families and the care team at Mountfitchet House. She makes all of us smile which is so very lovely to see.”
