At Morrow Manor, we believe in enhancing the experience of our residents with diverse, innovative activities. One such initiative is our partnership with local 4-H clubs and animal sanctuaries who bring different animals right here to our facility, once a month.
4-H is a global network of youth organizations that aim to “learn by doing.” The four H’s stand for Head, Heart, Hands, and Health, representing the organization’s goal to foster skills encompassing decision-making, empathy, practicality and well-being in youth. These clubs involve numerous programs, one of them being caring for and understanding animals.
Our collaborations with these 4-H clubs and animal sanctuaries consist of regular visits with a range of animals, from the playful goats to the ever-curious rabbits. These interactions allow our residents to enjoy their time differently, stirring feelings of delight and warmth.
At Morrow Manor, it is our constant endeavor to create a vibrant, fulfilling environment for our residents. And through initiatives like the animal visits from local 4-H clubs and animal sanctuaries, we continually strive to bring smiles to our residents’ faces while promoting their overall health and wellbeing.
