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.
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. Caring Hospice of Connecticut will match you and your pet therapist with the patients and their families.
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.
Individualized training is provided free of charge. In keeping with Medicare requirements, background and medical checks are part of the training process.
We'll work with your schedule.
