Pet Peace of Mind


Keeping Pets and People Together through Hospice Care

Many hospice patients experience a decline in physical condition that makes socializing and maintaining human relationships difficult. For many, pets can fill that gap and provide unconditional love, acceptance, comfort and companionship when they’re needed most.

Pet Peace of Mind®, a groundbreaking national program, enables hospice patients to keep their pets at home throughout their end of life journey.

Hospice of the Western Reserve volunteers are specially trained to provide in-home pet care assistance when patients need help caring for a pet. Hospice partners can also assist families in safely re-homing patients’ pets, should the need arise. Our volunteers help ensure patients’ and families’ comfort and peace of mind as they navigate hospice care without worrying about their pet’s current or future needs.
