The primary goal of our pet therapy program is to enhance the quality of life for our patients. In order to take part in our pet therapy program, dogs must have certification proof and immunization records provided. Dogs will interact with seniors in common areas or in rooms of bed bound seniors. It should be noted that a hospital environment is a busy one with noise, wheelchairs, walkers, medical carts, other equipment and variety of smells.
