Pet Therapy for patients
If you are a licensed therapist who works with dogs to provide therapy, we could use your help by volunteering time to visit with hospice patients who are at home or in nursing facilities. Anytime you are available will work for us, we will schedule patient visits according to your availability. Dogs have a calming nature when it comes to the elderly and we would love for our patients to experience the love of animals. All volunteers must pass a background and drug screen. Give us a call right away if this seems like something you would love to do for our hospice patients.

We are committed to and believe the patient is entitled to be as free of pain and symptoms as possible, and to live his or her life in a comfortable and compassionate environment.
When someone is faced with a life-limiting illness, they have special needs. We understand that and personalize our care to help meet those needs during what is a very trying emotional time. We help the patient and family navigate the difficult landscape of end-of-life care. Ours is a body, mind and soul approach . We are here for them, when life matters the most.
Each patient is assigned an interdisciplinary team of caregivers, dedicated to helping patients and their families share time together in the warmth, comfort and privacy of their own homes.
