Care Dimensions needs volunteers with dogs that are certified in pet therapy or have passed the AKC Good Citizen Test to join our Complementary Therapies Program.
Volunteers and their dogs visit hospice patients wherever they call home – nursing homes, assisted living facilities, private homes, and our hospice houses in Danvers and in Lincoln on the Waltham line. Our service area covers more than 100 communities in Massachusetts. Volunteers are needed in all geographic regions, and you can decide which assignments to take.
Pet Therapy visits are flexible, and YOU decide on the hours you can give.
