Info about Hospice of the Valley Pet Companion Program
The Pet Companion Program at Hospice of the Valley is a complimentary service offered to patients to help them feel more at ease. It arranges for vaccinated, well-trained and behaved dogs to visit patients in their homes and skilled nursing and residential care facilities. Pet Companion dogs have completed the American Kennel Club (AKCÂ®) Canine Good Citizen Program and are able to cope with whatever is going on around them and their visits enhance a patientâ€™s day. A dog can act as a conduit to disseminate information or assess how a patient is feeling on a particular day; and at times patients feel more comfortable telling a dog how they are feelingâ€”not remembering a handler is in a room. Dogs are fluffy, comforting, warm, non-judgmental, and offer a calming presence. Hospice of the Valley is able to offer this program to patients thanks to volunteers and donors. 100% of the Pet Companion Program funding is derived through fundraising.
