Fetch with Molly

Meet Molly, our beautiful furry companion at The Homestead (Walkley Heights, SA).

Below, she is pictured with Ted, one of our residents at the aged care home. Every morning, Ted comes down to throw the ball for Molly, and recently, staff have trained Molly to return the ball to the seat on his walker so that Ted doesn’t have to bend down.

Being a good, intelligent dog, Molly is now doing this for all of our residents with walkers, and they’re loving it (and you can bet that Molly is loving all the attention!)

Molly is a key member of our community at The Homestead. She provides companionship, and helps our residents live their lives as usual.
