About

The AseraCare Hospice Pet Therapy program is one of many alternative treatment programs used to help in the care of patients with terminal illnesses. Many of our patients had to give up their pets, and they miss the casual acceptance a pet gives them. the companionship that our volunteer pets provide can help to fill their lonely days and ease any feelings of isolation. Pet Therapy can bring a sense of peace and trust to our patients, and help to relieve stress. Pets often open the door to communication, making it easier for the patient to open up and talk with someone who is new to them. The benefits of Pet Therapy continue long after the visit.
