Pets are a part of life for many people. Moving to a long-term care community should not end this vital connection. Puppies for Parole is a program of the MO Department of Corrections in which inmates train dogs for adoption by families and communities.
NHC Maryland Heights is a long-term care community with extensive experience with animals – including chickens, fish, birds, alpacas, a sheep and a horse. Together these presenters will teach professionals why and how to integrate animals into long-term care.
