Calling all Furry Heroes :) Certified pets needed to provide therapeutic visits to people living with a terminal illness. Pets must be certified to provide the visits and have an updated vaccination record. Schedules are very flexible and based on volunteers availability. If you would like to assist with this very important calling to provide increased stimulation/engagement/companionship and emotional support for a hospice patient. Please reach out to me for more information on how to get started. Tammy Webb, VC @ 210.585.2335 or vc@guidinghospice.com

Description

Guiding Light Hospice is a non-denomination, registered, community based hospice care agency licensed by State of Texas Department of Aging and Disability Services (DADS) and Medicare (CMS) and Accredited by Community Health Accreditation Program (CHAP).

The diagnosis of a life limiting illness causes immeasurable emotional distress for patients and their loved ones. The pain and symptoms associated with these conditions can become unbearable and decisions about care and treatment are often overwhelming and difficult to make.
