We are looking for caring compassionate people to warm the hearts of the elderly. You will walk away with an amazing warmth in yours as well. Sometimes by just taking a few hours out of your month to sit with someone makes such an impact in a person's life. A animal is a different kind of comfort that you feel in your soul and right now that is what some of our patients need. A different kind of comfort, if you can open your heart and help bring a smile to just one person it makes a difference. we are seeking caring individuals who have a licensed therapy dog who are willing to visit hospice patients who reside in nursing home facilities.
