Moorhouse residents give a special guest a warm welcome

Moorhouse Nursing Home’s Activity Co-ordinator Judith, gave residents a delightful prickly surprise when she brought baby hedgehog ‘Gerald’ into the home for them to meet.

A regular foster mum for hedgehogs, Judith is looking after the 5-month-old hedgehog after it had been harmed by a cat and required treatment by the local vet.

Residents loved seeing the baby hedgehog up close and hearing how Judith will care for Gerald until he is about 800g/1kg before being released back into the wild at he’s home in Alton, in time for hibernation.
