As alpacas Ned, Floyd and Jimmy peer at their reflection in the window, on the other side of the glass, elderly residents of Chartwell Parkhill Long Term Care Residence wave and giggle at the goofy animals.

The three visitors usually live at Sylvan Alpacas farm in Parkhill, Ont., west of London, but they recently paid a visit to the facility to brighten the spirits of residents who, like others in long-term care, have been largely cut off from the rest of the world by the COVID-19 pandemic.

The three animals, along with handlers Nick and Steph Ince, walked around the outside of the home, stopping at each window.
