Ohio Living Home Health Hospice is in search of Therapy Dogs and Owners
Ohio Living values the importance of pet therapy and the health benefits that pets can provide. Did you know that just a few moments of stroking the fur of a pet therapy animal can initiate a reaction in the body that leads to decreased loneliness, depression and agitation as well as increased social interaction, nutrition intake and sense of well being. Unfortunately, too often our patients are unable to have a pet within their home, nursing home, assisted living or group home in which they reside. If you have a certified therapy pet, please consider volunteering for Ohio Living Home Health & Hospice!

Our mission is to provide adults with caring and quality services toward the enhancement of physical, mental and spiritual well-being consistent with the Christian Gospel.
Ohio Living Home Health & Hospice, a wholly owned subsidiary of Ohio Living, is one of Ohio’s premier providers of home health and hospice services, recognized for quality, innovation, and a positive work environment.
Hospice is a special kind of caring. Hospice care is patient and family centered and seeks to provide support and comfort to those facing a life limiting illness. Volunteers play a large role in this effort by sharing their skills and interests in a manner that enriches the quality of life for those they serve.
Medicare also recognizes the importance of volunteers in the delivery of hospice care. Medicare requires that hospice utilize volunteers from their local community to augment the care the hospice agency provides. Nationally, over 100,000 people serve as hospice volunteers and give millions of hours of their time to serve terminally ill patients and their families.
We'll work with your schedule.
