Therapy Dogs @ Home
Retirement Homes, Private Homes*, Hospice Care Facilities,
"Therapy Dogs @ Home” is for anyone, young or old, who need something to brighten their day. If you know someone who is housebound due to illness or disability, or is in an end-of-life/palliative care situation, we can bring a cuddly vetted therapy dog to spend some quality time curled up with them.
The benefits of a visit from a therapy dog are well known - in this setting they help decrease the feeling of isolation and loneliness, increase the feeling of pleasure and normalcy, and provide a very warm and furry distraction for an hour or so!
