Therapy dog visit at the Lighthouse & Care Home



Therapy dog visits for a moment of being

Simply be for a moment

Offer

Zürcher Lighthouse

Our therapy dogs regularly visit the Zürcher Lighthouse hospice for the dying to bring joy to the residents. The right words are hard to find. It is always touching how the dogs are a little ray of hope in the moment.

Laughing together, crying together, being together.

The dog is a wonderful bridge. We say thank you to our four-legged friends and we are grateful that we can visit the Zürcher Lighthouse together.

Care home "Sonnweid"

We are happy about great feedback from Sonnweid, the care home where our four- legged friends visit every Wednesday:

"Since we are a special home for exclusively people with dementia, the therapy dogs are an important offer for us. Especially in the oasis wards, the wards where the people are in the last dementia phase and mostly have no word language anymore, the dogs give many nice moments in a very calm and non-verbal way. We are very happy to be able to use your offer and appreciate the uncomplicated cooperation with you enormously. Best regards, Alice" (Head of Activation, Sonnweid das Heim / Wetzikon)
