Ascend Hospice is recruiting Volunteers for their Animal- Assisted Therapy Program. This is a wonderful way to bring love and comfort to patients in nursing homes, assisted living, and home settings. Let your certified pet help hospice patients better cope with their final journey. Significantly reduce anxiety, depression and fatigue just by allowing your pet to spend time with a patient in need of the emotional support a animal can provide.
If you and your certified pet would like to participate, we would love to have you be a part of our program. Please contact our Volunteer Coordinator at:
