Eligibility: PET VISITATIONS :
• Background check and two-step PPD (TB test) are required; costs are covered by Homeland Hospice.
• Animals and handlers be certified in pet therapy. Obtaining certification ensures that both handler and animal have proper training and are fully prepared to interact with patients, caregivers, and families.

Pet companionship is much more than a simple visit with an animal. You and your pet have the unique ability to bring joy, humor, love, and comfort to someone on the end-of-life journey.
