Pet therapy at Staffordshire care homeResidents enjoyed time with a furry friend today at HC-One’s Maple Lodge care home in Rowley Park, Stafford.

Everyone enjoyed a cuddle and some play time with the home’s resident rabbit.

Iris Andrews, a Resident of the home, said: “He is absolutely gorgeous.”
