Lucky
Nazareth Lodge Puppy

Lucky's job is simple - to make our residents and staff smile every day.  This is a role that he performs expertly!

At Nazareth Lodge, we believe that having animals around the home on a daily basis actually helps our residents feel more at home.  Having pets can help reduce blood pressure and improve overall cardiovascular health. It can also release endorphins that produce a calming effect that can help reduce stress and pain and improve cognitive performance.

Testimonials

Our friend has been a resident at Nazareth Lodge for over 2 years. We visit her regularly. During that time, we have been totally satisfied with the level of care she has received. The staff are very attentive and the food is good. Her room is modern and cleaned regularly. She is very contented and feels at home. I would have no hesitation in recommending Nazareth Lodge to others, as we have done in the past.
