Animal Assisted Therapy

Thursday, May 25, 2017 at 1:00pm

Beaumont’s Animal Assisted Therapy program helps hundreds of patients each year cope with the stress of hospitalization through interactions with furry, four-legged volunteers. In providing comfort, encouraging social interaction, and promoting positive non-threatening physical contact, Animal Assisted Therapy has been shown to have a number of benefits. Volunteer Coordinator at Beaumont Health System, Carla Grava, will bring a few of these wonderful therapy dogs along with their handlers to Next as she discusses this unique program.
