ECH Day Program Smithfield - Pet Friendly Visiting

ECH is looking for volunteers to assist in ECH Day Programs with their good natured and well trained pets to visit our clients in the ECH Day Programs designed to cater for people who may be experiencing dementia or memory loss to engage in a range social activities.

Dogs are popular but other pets are welcome if they are healthy, confident with strangers, never timid and well mannered. Pet Visits have a number of benefits. Your furry friend will be rewarded for their generosity, through special moments, smiles, positive feedback, or unexpected reactions from clients.

If you are compassionate, friendly, assertive with a positive outlook we would love to hear from you.

Dog assessment is required prior to the visits commencing

Days negotiable - Monday to Friday, 9:30 to 3:00 pm

Centrelink requirements can be met

Volunteers must be up to date with COVID vaccinations, ie double vaccinated plus booster

 

National Police Check is required
