How can animals help?

Pets have an age-old history of providing authentic camaraderie and displaying unreserved love for the people in their lives. This camaraderie and love forms a great emotional connection between animal and human. The connections that people share with pets can have positive outcomes: lowered nervousness and pressure, more feelings of relaxation, and generally an improved viewpoint on life. In pursuit to offer patients with the best end-of-life care possible, many hospice organizations use animal companionship as a form of therapy. Pet therapy, also known as animal-assisted therapy, in the hospice situation uses the natural connection between humans and animals to offer comfort, peace, and calming friendship to terminally ill patients.
