Baby Animals Visit Allerton House in Weymouth

Sitting still and regal, a Silkie, enjoys the soothing strokes of resident Joann McLaughlin.

Pets and small animals make people of all ages feel good. Residents at Allerton House at Central Park know this is true and were delighted for a chance to visit with and pet a variety of baby farm animals, including bunnies, kids, and piglets from Farm Visits, a traveling petting farm. In older adults, studies have shown that pets can relieve stress and even help to fight off depression. It’s easy to see by the faces of residents that a visit by the baby animals is truly beneficial.

A Song Brightens the Spirits at Allerton House in Quincy

Allerton House at Quincy resident Bonnie Costello (foreground) brings together other residents in song.

There’s even more music in the air these days at Allerton House at Hancock Park, thanks to a bright idea from Bonnie Costello. Bonnie, a resident of the Quincy assisted living residence since 2012, says, “We have a lot of entertainment programs here, and I noticed a lot of people singing along. So I thought, ‘How about starting a singing group?’”

Bonnie, who sang in her church choir for 20 years, brought the idea to the activities director, and the residents’ signing group began meeting this summer, singing the classics like “My Wild Irish Rose,” “Let Me Call You Sweetheart,” and “Yankee Doodle.” “Everyone is welcome,” says Costello. “You just have to like to sing!”

A tour and more information about Allerton House at Hancock Park in Quincy, call 781-413-7850.
