Claremont Rabbit Bupa Edinburgh PR ClientResidents at Bupa’s Claremont Care Home in Ayr are hopping with delight over the arrival of two pet rabbits.

The care home, in High Thornyflat Wynd, Whitletts, held its annual Summer Fete in July with a local pet company providing visitors, staff and residents with the chance to meet and greet a range of animals from ducks to chicks and rabbits.

Carers and relatives noticed how well the residents responded to having the animals within the home, especially the rabbits, and decided it would be a fantastic idea to purchase a pet.

Staff also rallied together to buy a hutch for the rabbits which was built by the care home’s maintenance man, who dedicating his own free time to ensure the pets had a comfortable living space.

Carol Barr, Home Manager at Bupa’s Claremont Care Home, is delighted at how well the arrival of the rabbits have been received by the home’s residents.

She said: “All the residents adore the rabbits we’ve bought for the home. I think they find it quite therapeutic having pets here – the feedback has been great.

It’s also great when the resident’s family and grandchildren come to visit, it just gives people that extra something to enjoy together.

Here at Claremont we try to enrich the lives of our residents as much as possible and this was another example of how we aim to do that.”
