It was an overload of adorableness at IRT Sarah Claydon this morning when South Coast Wildlife Rescue carers and their crew of baby kangaroos, tiny turtles and little lizzards visited the residents as a Seniors Week treat.
Everyone had a chance to have a cuddle and there were no objections from the animals.
The star of the show was the baby wallaby which had been recently rescued and was snuggled in its blankets as everyone cooed over it.
The idea was to give people an opportunity to see and touch animals they otherwise would never get to see.
The animal visit was one of many events happening at Sarah Claydon this week as part of Seniors Week.
The week has been packed with performances, workshops and visits from schools.
St Mary’s students visited on Wednesday to talk to residents about their lives and the history of the area. It gave children an opportunity to see seniors in a new light and learn from their insights and experiences.
