Life goes on at Woodland View

Residents at Woodland View care home, Sheffield, have been bringing new life into the world.

Residents at Woodland View care home, Sheffield, have been bringing new life into the world.  As part of the activity programme residents have been caring for new born chicks that hatched out in incubators, with great success.
 
The chicks have received lots of care from the residents, including being fed a breakfast of Weetabix and porridge!  The chick’s new fledglings will now be taken by staff and residents to enjoy life at a free range farm.
 
Woodland View is currently under the threat of closure as NHS Sheffield are proposing to withdraw funding for the service.
