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.
