We are looking for individuals who have an approved animal visitor (dog, cat, etc.) to visit terminally ill patients and their families to provide comfort, joy and companionship. Teams will visit patients in Assisted Living Facilities and Skilled Nursing Homes.

Pet therapy handlers must produce documented evidence of annual reputable therapy pet organization membership (e.g. Pet Partners) and veterinary visits attesting to good behavior, good health and current vaccinations.

We provide comprehensive training and on-going education. Infection control measures are practiced and PPE provided as necessary/appropriate. COVID vaccination and booster required. In keeping with Medicare requirements, background and medical checks are part of the training process.

Caring Hospice of Connecticut is a unique, holistic and cost effective service designed to meet the social, emotional, spiritual and physical needs of our patients and families as they face terminal illness. Pet therapy volunteers help by providing companionship and a social outlet to patients, who reside in private homes, nursing homes and assisted-living facilities throughout Fairfield and New Haven Counties.

Mission Statement

Caring Hospice is a unique, holistic and cost effective service designed to meet the social, emotional, spiritual and physical needs of our patients and families as they face terminal illness.

Description

"Life is for living." Caring Hospice has been providing hospice services since 1997. We are passionate about our mission to bring comfort and relief into the lives of those who need it most.
