Teddy in training to bring comfort…

Teddy is hypoallergenic and bred to be calm in nature. He will lives with Kelly Karavousanos, LPC, CT, Director of Grief Services and our Center for Hope and Healing, and will be in training over the 2016 year. His role, once he becomes fully trained, will be to provide comfort and love to families during visitations and services as well as helping during counseling sessions. Teddy will also visit local nursing homes, hospices, and schools in the area with Kelly to talk about grief.

The power of touch and the animal-human bond have been proven over and over again to provide a therapeutic effect for both humans and animals.  Numerous studies have found supportive evidence for positive mental and physical health benefits from being near animals and touching them. We look forward to bringing Teddy’s healing ability to our families after his training is complete .
