Pet therapy

Pet therapy

Animals can be a fantastic comfort to those we care for, and are proven to relieve stress to boot.

If you have a beloved family pet of your own, we'll do all we can to make sure your bond with them stays strong - whether that's through regular visits or letting them move into the hospice with you. If you aren't feeling up to looking after your furry friend full time, we'll arrange for someone to take on the areas you can't manage (such as walking Fido or playing with Mr Whiskers) or cover every aspect of their care.

Don't have a pet of your own but would benefit from a cuddle? We can arrange for trained pet therapists to bring along a playmate for you; just let us know what would make your day.
