I am the founder of a volunteer program which brings dogs to an elderly care facility!
The program worked by screening companion animals (pets) as possible candidates to bring to an assisted living facility, the majority of the residents have memory issues. I contacted a licensed dog trainer, who completed the screening as well as supervises every visit. We visited the facility every Saturday, and each session went for approximately one hour.
I started this as a 17 year old and now am 18. I am female, based in the US.
