Pets for Patient Progress
The Assisi Animal Foundation introduced animal assisted therapy to our area back
in 1987. The award winning program continues to grow, as does public and professional
recognition of its benefits to residents of nursing facilities, assisted living,
Alzheimers Centers and special disabilities facilities. Assisi, when feasible,
has also made "shut-in" home visits. We are proud of this service
to the community and the elderly and welcome volunteers willing to help. Please
call, e-mail or write for information.
folks contact Assisi wanting to use their pets on these Assisi visits. We
only use cats and dogs that are Assisi "residents."
those wising to make visits on their own, with their own pets, we have no
"special advice" except for you to contact locations in your area
and go visit. You must consult with your family attorney and insurance
carrier first, of course.
