ECAD, Educated Canines Assisting with Disabilities
October 4, 2011
I'm a registered nurse and manager in a very busy hospital. The thought of adding another task to my laundry list of duties I perform daily becomes chilling. However, volunteering one hour a day to round on my patients with "Lily" our hospital's Service/Therapy dog is the most rewarding part of my day! "Lily" always brings smiles to the patients, their families and the staff. She assists with motivating, stress reduction and bringing the "Healing environment" to our facility.
I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...
Promoting animal assisted therapies such as stress reduction, animal assisted occupational and physical therapy. Increasing motivation in patients their families as well as my staff.
Ways to make it better...
If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...
Open another ECAD facility in South Florida.
