Rescue therapy dog loves to rescue others with licks and play
Senior helper therapy dog “Bolt” loves to visit his home care clients. He even tries to pretend her can write about it.
“Today I visited my best buddy, Gordon, who loves our pet therapy dog services,” says Bolt.
These therapy dog visits are part of the home care services provided to clients by At Home Nursing Care, a licensed and accredited provider of in home care and nursing.
Therapy dogs are senior helpers by providing companionship, exercise and unconditional love. Bolt loves to be pet, and Gordon loves to take long walks with bolt, which improves his stamina and health.
There are many benefits of having a therapy dog, including mental benefits, physical benefits and emotional benefits. A therapy dog visit can reduce stress, reduce blood pressure, calm nerves and help people with health issues feel less lonely and isolated, which is a detriment to improved health.
“Gordon is a very nice client of At Home Nursing Care,” says Bolt, ”he always gives me a healthy treat and pets my head.”
Of course, being a senior helper is tiring and Bolt often has to take a nap while he is being pet by our clients.
