ORGANIZATION: UR Medicine Home Care Hospice

Pet Therapist

A visit from a Pet Therapist and their dog creates a variety of benefits to hospice patients, and often their families as well, by providing comfort, love and companionship. Whether your meeting brings joy and reduces feelings of isolation, anxiety, and depression or helps to take a patient's mind off their aches and pains the visit makes an important impact.

We would love to add more Pet Therapists to our team to visit patients in their home, nursing homes, and hospitals. Your pet must be a certified therapy pet with RocDog or TDI. Please reach out with any questions!
