Residents at Weymouth Care Home opened its doors to a selection of creepy crawlies this month when Bugfest dropped in with a variety of creatures. From the small exotic bugs to an impressively large snake, the residents were able to get up close and learn all about the amazing animals. Bugfest, who are based in Dorset, provide educational visits for schools and care homes.
Paula Hartley, Manager at Weymouth Care Home said,
‘Our residents were very excited about our visitors, and I have to say, much braver than I was! Although they seemed a little nervous at first, they were soon put at ease by the handlers and it made a change seeing something that we all normally shy away from’.
Weymouth Care Home is owned by Altogether Care, a Dorset based care provider that encourages their residents to live life to the full.
