Bring along your good natured pet and spend time chatting with people living with dementia who may be frail and elderly at our residential aged care home in Wahroonga. You’ll see what a difference your furry friend can make.
As you're bringing your pet into an care environment with frail and elderly residents, we ask that your pet is • Calm, patient and gentle in nature • Up-to-date with vaccinations and treatment of worms and fleas • Nails should be short and blunt. Freshly cuts nails can be sharp if not filed down. • Dogs should be kept on a lead at all times.
This role will suit you if you have a small-medium sized pet and you're happy to just to sit and not necessarily talk all the time.
Ideally you’ll be available one hour a week for 12 months or longer, any day between 9:30am – 4:30pm
