There are personal stories from people who have used animals talking about their successes and occasional failures. There are resource lists of people to contact who will help you set up a program in your facility. And there is information about the procedures and protocols you need to put in place to make sure that your program functions safely for both your residents and your animals. Both in-house pets and pet visitors are covered. Pet owners can learn how to work with an activity director in a facility to start their own program.
