LITA organizes opportunities year round for volunteers to socialize and share thier pets during individual, youth group and family visitors with our disabled elderly living at Legacy Nursing and Rehab in martinez . LITA serves other nursing facilities mainly in West Contra Costa County including Pleasant HIll, Concord and El Sobrante.
Facility staff warmly welcome LITA Pet Visitors, as less than half of residents have any family visitors and all residents have had to give up theirr beloved pets. LITA organizes individual Pet Visits and group Pet Parades,
No special certification is needed for a pet to visit. The animal simply needs to be very calm and gentle and not at all disturbed by the busy and sometimes noisy atmosphere of a skilled nursing facility. Volunteer must meet Activity Director and bring a copy to leave at the facility of their pets most recent vet visit records, LITA makes introductions and is there to support all new and ongoing Pet Visitors.
