Denise and Hope had their first therapy visit and it was a glowing success.
They chose a skilled nursing facility to kick off their career and as always, Golden Retrievers are a huge hit!
So many of the residents had big dogs and loved seeing Hope stroll through the hallway.
One gentleman in particular took a shine to her but he was in bed and not able to sit up or reach down to pet her. So Denise did a wonderful assisted hold to bring Hope’s head just up to the side of the bed and lean on the edge of the bed, and this was close enough for him to stroke her and both dog and man were so happy.
Many of the staff just loved seeing them and are looking forward to many return visits.
