Unconditional Love, Warmth, & Joy
Healthcare providers, like Horizon, acknowledge the therapeutic benefits that animals can bring. Pets make a visceral impact on patients, staff, and visitors of our hospice units. Horizon is able to offer this opportunity in partnership with Health Heelers, Inc., a professional therapy animal service from Menomonee Falls, WI.
Laura Hey, Founder of Health Heelers, has a degree in Animal-Assisted Therapy and is a health care professional. The blending of her experience and expertise in the areas of therapy dog/cat programs, and animal temperament and behavior, enables Horizon Hospice to provide this exceptional service to our patients and families.
