1 PAWS visiting Sites PAWS for Elders Assisted Living Assisted living means that people are in pretty good shape both physically and mentally but need some assistance when it comes to things like laundry, cleaning, and making meals. AL folks are relatively hearty and can take a more energetic dog. They also often have lunch dates or are out of the building, so their lives are relatively full. They tend to go into their rooms after meals and watch TV or read. If their doors are shut, you can feel confident about knocking and asking if they'd like a visit. Abbey Manor Cardinal Village Emeritus at White Chapel Granite Farms Estates Heritage of Dover The Hickman Highfield Masonic Home of Delaware Jenner s Pond Lima Estates Little Sisters of the Poor Luther Towers I Luther Towers II Methodist Country House Millcroft Somerford House Sunrise of Wilmington Wellington at Hershey s Mill Alzheimer s Alzheimer's disease is a disease of the brain causing memory loss. Most ALZ residents are in reasonably decent physical shape but their minds are failing. They must be confined (locked down) so they don't stray away, and are usually kept together in common areas for socialization and stimulation. Pet visits often reach ALZ patients then people cannot. The magic of the pet-human connection is most evident in this type of visit.

2 Skilled care Patients residing in skilled care facilities are in need of serious medical care on a regular basis. Much like a hospital setting, a skilled care facility presents a pet therapy team with challenges of visiting people in their beds, the noises of ventilators, lots of wheelchairs, and nursing staff on call 24 hours a day. Therapy teams are needed in such places to help people stave off boredom, brighten their days, and give them some comfort and maybe a little escape for the daily issues of their illness.

Day care services include stimulating programs and crafts. Our therapy animals make a great addition to the services offered. Union Hospital Adult Day Services Elkton, MD Hospice Working in partnership with both Willow Tree Hospice and Compassionate Care Hospice, PAWS provides the pet therapy training and coordination, while the hospices provide interested volunteers and the scheduling of visits. Our agreement with Heartland Hospice, however, is more typical of PAWS arrangements: our trained teams decide that they want to visit at Heartland, and they then complete Heartland's own orientation and training.

3 Hospitals Cancer Treatment Both Chemotherapy and radiation are offered at Graham.

4 PAWS for Adults with SPECIAL NEEDS Visiting with adults with varying levels of disabilities requires both patience and compassion from the human and a pet that is comfortable in an environment very different from home. Close work with the staff helps a team know how best to work with the participants, most of whom are delighted to be able to pet and play with a therapy companion. Drug & Alcohol Treatment Programs Residential treatment centers provide several types of visits for our therapy teams. Sometimes there is unstructured time when the patients can just hang out with our pets and get the love and attention they may be missing; we also are invited to attend group discussion sessions where the presence of a therapy pet can reduce anxiety, provide comfort, and become a reminder that there is hope and a future. Bowling Green Brandywine Toughkenamon, PA Mirmont Treatment Center Lima, PA Cecil County Dept. of Health-Alcohol and Drug Recovery Center Elkton, MD Adults with mental and physical disabilities Easter Seals Easter Seals cares for adults with developmental disabilities. There are 2 separate programs at this one site - one for folks who are higher functioning - they play computer, dominoes, watch movies, and do crafts.

6 PT/OT/Speech Therapy PAWS teams work directly with therapists at a number of different sites to assist in their clients' progress. Besides the love and comfort that our pets give freely, they also provide the motivation for trying some new movements, working longer, and enjoying the activities. This in turn allows the clients to relax while exercising, which helps their muscles work with less strain and tension. Christiana Care PT Plus Newark Christiana Care Rehab Services Springside PSYCHIATRIC SERVICES PAWS psychiatric services offer care and compassion for those that are either in a long-term or short-term care setting for mental illnesses.

8 PAWS for Reading PAWS for Reading is a program that allows children to read aloud to a therapy dog (or cat) in order to improve reading and communication skills. Children read individually to trained therapy pets (and their handlers) in schools, libraries, or other settings where they can feel comfortable and confident -- and have fun! After all, a dog will not correct them or make them feel awkward if they stumble.
