One of our active volunteers on a hospice visit


Kaiser Permanente hospice volunteers who have registered pet-assisted therapy animals to visit patients currently on Kaiser Permanente Hospice service. These companionship visits have the goal of enhancing patients’ psychosocial well-being through safe animal contact. It is not the role of the pet-assisted therapy team to assist or care for a patient’s physical needs or be involved in any therapeutic practice involving therapeutic outcomes. Volunteers and pet assisted therapy dogs will visit patients living in facilities only.
