The Comfort of a Cuddle
Pet Visit Enrichment
Studies indicate pet visits help enhance both the mental and physical health of patients. Cuddling an animal can help reduce anxiety, lower blood pressure and heart rate and ease depression. Our pet visitors, like Frannie pictured above with Hilda Bloom, z’l, are trained and certified. (Frannie’s visits are facilitated by pet specialist Rosalind Zukowski.)
