Imagine the way you feel after you've had a long day and you come home to your furry friend. You could bring that same feeling to someone else in need!
Elara Caring, a leading Midwest Hospice Organization, is looking for therapy teams or individuals willing to share their pet with our hospice patients. Patients reside in nursing homes, assisted living facilities, as well as their own homes. As a pet therapy volunteer, you have the opportunity to brighten a patient’s day while bringing them emotional and physical benefits.
A visit from a therapy dog can be very therapeutic for terminally ill patients. They enjoy the extra attention and unconditional love they feel from a 4-legged companion. All dogs must be trained through Therapy Dogs International or Bright and Beautiful Therapy Dog and must be current on all shots. Proof of certification required.
We can work with any busy schedule.
Come brighten someone else's day by volunteering with us. We would love to have you join our team.
