The therapy dog program at Griffin Hospital has helped bring comfort to patients for years. Thanks to a recent fund-raiser, they are now bringing extra comfort to the families of terminally ill patients.
People and Animals Working in Spirit (PAWS), the therapy dog program at Griffin Hospital, sold calendars featuring photos of its canine caregivers this winter and raised $1,450.
The funds were used to purchase care bags for the caregivers of hospice patients. The bags include items to help relieve stress and provide comfort, such as poetry and aromatics.
