Volunteers can help in countless ways - their exceptional support to families and staff is indispensable.

Pet Companionship Volunteers bring their certified pets on visits with patients. These visits bring incredible joy to animal lovers. All pets must be certified with one of our partner agencies: People Animals Love (PAL), Pets on Wheels (POW), and Therapy Dogs International (TDI). Once certified, these loveable pets and hoomans visit in patients’ homes, in nursing homes, in assisted living facilities, and at Casey House.
