Elkhart nursing home hosts petting zoo


Residents at an Elkhart nursing home had a visit from some special guests on Thursday.  As part of National Nursing Home Week, Riverside Village organized a traveling petting farm to visit the care facility.

Activity Director Carrie Miller says events like these have a big impact on the residents.  "If you have a pet or a baby come into the facility, or a toddler, they drop whatever they are doing."

Farm Day was just part of Riverside Village's National Nursing Home Week plans.  Each day this week has a different theme.
