ORGANIZATION: Eskaton

Volunteers Demonstrate the Heart of Eskaton

If you have a pet who enjoys being adored and loved on, please consider bringing your pet for visits for our care center residents. Their visits will inspire present connection and past memories. The ability to snuggle and interact with animal provides a unique moment of comfort and warmth for residents some of whom are living with dementia. This opportunity would also be good for a family who wanted to visit with their pet.

*Covid precautions remain in place at this time.
