Maggie Cares: A New Pet Therapy Blog Feature

blog1_2

My name is Maggie, and I’m honored to be featured as the online pet therapy dog for THA Group’s Island Hospice. I’ll be visiting you through the “blogosphere” to bring you a little cheer and brighten your day.

I’m a 7 year old Soft Coated Wheaten Terrier. I began working as a therapy dog in 2009 as a “Healing Hound,” providing comfort and affection to many wonderful people in a Connecticut hospital. I’ve been told that my presence has helped to reduce stress, improve moods, and even lower blood pressure.

Thank you for visiting my blog feature! I promise you tips, quips, quotes and photos that I hope will make you smile.

Island Hospice Brings Holiday Cheer to Residents of Morningside Assisted Living Facility

On December 17th, THA Group’s Island Hospice team members experienced a magical afternoon at the Morningside Assisted Living Facility. Above the front door is a “Welcome Home” sign, and this is exactly you feel when you enter the beautifully decorated building.

Island Hospice staff members Jenna Watkins (Music Therapist), Owen Tucker (Chaplain), Betsy Kane (RN Patient Care Coordinator) and others were greeted by the smiling faces of the staff and residents. A group of local home schooled children were also in attendance.

Jenna Watkins visits the Morningside residents every other week to offer music therapy and interaction. This particular visit turned into a holiday celebration. Jenna played guitar and sang, while the children entertained and played their maracas, wooden musical instruments and various other fun instruments. The residents received treats to enjoy with punch. The room was full of happy faces and warm hearts as all enjoyed singing familiar Christmas carols and other favorite songs.

As the celebration ended with the singing of “Happy Trails,” the room opened to further laughter and story sharing. Children spoke to their elders and were thanked for their efforts. As everyone sang, one special child made her way around the room, making eye contact and reach out to different people. While her mother indicated that she is actually quite shy, it appears she may just be more comfortable with her elders!

This is one example of how Island Hospice not only delivers exceptional hospice care, but also connects with people within our communities. We believe in building relationships and developing new friendships.
