How Pet Therapy can help Hospice Patients:

- Reduces patient anxiety

- Releases patient endorphins

- Helps patients reminisce

- Encourages patients to talk about their feelings

- Helps patients talk about their grief and process grief

- Provides socialization opportunities for patients because of a common interest in the animal

- Provides isolated patients with an opportunity for touch/snuggling
