Tidewell is looking for well behaved pets (dogs willing to undergo an evaluation) to visit our patients in our Hospice House, local nursing homes, and assisted living facilities. Days and times are generally flexible. If your pet is certified already, we do accept some other agency certifications. If not, we provide an evaluation through Bright & Beautiful Therapy Dogs.
Tidewell Hospice's mission is to provide the highest quality of care that embraces a comprehensive continuum of services for patients and families dealing with advanced illness
Tidewell is an independent, not-for-profit organization offering a home-based, total support system for patients and families dealing with a life-limiting illness, serving more than 1100 patients a day in Sarasota, Manatee, Charlotte and DeSoto counties. Volunteers are part of the Hospice Team that offers supportive medical, emotional, spiritual and volunteer services to patients and families who are facing difficulties at the end of life. Hospice volunteers are concerned individuals who willingly give of their time and talents to help Hospice families in many ways. They come from all walks of life, bonded by the mutual desire to serve the community.
