About

Pet Therapy visits to our hospice patients are porvided by individuals and pets that have been certified through an accredited pet therapy organization. These volunteers share their pets with patients using them as a therapeutic tool to ease stress and give a sense of warmth and love. The pets provide comfort and companionship and often become a trusted friend.

If you are interested in volunteering with your pet, please call Kim Iannacci, Volunteer Coordinator at 508 721 1219 or email me at Kimberly.Iannacci@aseracare.com
