Do you have a Certified Therapy Dog that you love to have go visit our patients? We are looking for volunteers!

Dogs have a history of providing faithful companionship and showing love for humans. These loyal animals are one of the best sources of comfort for hospice patients and their families.

Certified Therapy Dogs can provide a wide range of physical, emotional, and social benefits to patients and their families. Pet therapy is an ideal option to provide comfort care at a critical time in patients' lives.

Therapy Dogs play an extremely vital role in the care and support of hospice patients and family members. Through petting and snuggles, the patients bond and have a sense of comfort from the dog.

If you are interested in becoming a volunteer and making someone's day brighter, please visit our website at www.accentcare.com and fill out an application today.

If you have any questions, please contact Lisa Wahrmund at lisawahrmund@accentcare.com
