Young Pups move into aged care


Alino Living’s Killarney Court welcomed two 12-week-old King Charles Cavalier puppies to its community earlier this month.

The addition of these two dogs can be attributed to resident Peter Chambers who, with permission from the facility, purchased communal puppies, Molly and Lilly.

“The recent addition of Molly and Lilly is part of our engagement and therapy program to ensure our residents continue to live fulfi lled and positive lives and we are already seeing the positive impact they are having on our residents’ overall wellbeing.”

“Dogs, particularly puppies, bring about such a positive and happy atmosphere and trialling this permanent pet program at Killarney Court is part of our strategy to implement initiatives that have long-term benefits for both our residents and our team, and that create a sense of what they would experience within their own home in the community.

“We are really excited to continue to see how Molly and Lilly grow at Killarney Court and how they can continue to provide so much love to our residents,”. ACG
