    We Love Pet Therapy-Emotional Support & Service Animals

    in Pets

    About Pet Therapy


    A hand reaches out, a wagging tail approaches, and an elderly face breaks into a smile. It's a scene that's increasingly common in the Helena Valley, thanks to volunteers from the Helena Chapter of Intermountain Therapy Animals. Activity directors and health care professionals report that visiting pets reach nursing home residents, hospital patients, retirement home residents and adult day care participants in ways that other therapeutic activities can't.


    The contact may be brief, but it brightens the entire day or week, especially for those who have had pets in the past. In some cases, an animal's visit is transforming. Shy, withdrawn, or depressed people find themselves in animated conversation, angry people relax, and those with memory lapses share detailed recollections of pets they lived with years before. Visiting pets have reached autistic children, stroke victims, Alzheimer's patients, and other "unreachables." Even when nothing dramatic happens, pet visits are important changes of pace for facility residents, bringing excitement, affection, comfort, physical contact and joy.


    In addition, to providing companionship (called Animal Assisted Activity), visiting pets sometimes participate in a facility's therapy program. In Animal Assisted Therapy, a dog might stand while a patient brushes him order to exercise specific arm muscles, or a cat might visit a depressed patient to encourage conversation, or someone in speech therapy might give commands to a dog that does tricks or retrieves objects. Anyone who loves animals is likely to work harder and feel more motivated when one is part of the therapy team.

    What Your Pet Can Teach You--Featuring "Pet Grief Coach" Judy Helm Wright

    in Pets

    www.deathofmypet.com  


    As pet owners we are often concerned about what and how we can train our pets.  But the truth is that pets often teach us.  As a parent educator (and pet grief coach) I use animals to teach families how to relate to one another in daily life.


    Today's show will be about some of the life skills we can learn from animals.  Here are just some we will discuss;



    To have unconditional love for others.
    To be non-judgemental about race, gender, religion or nationality
    To protect our loved ones
    To be aware of other's feelings and show empathy and comfort
    To show loyalty for family
    To trust your instincts
    To live in the moment--don't hold grudges
    To keep our needs simple
    To hide a little something away for a rainy day
    To include excercise and naps in everyday.


    You are invited to call in during the show or to leave comments that may be used in an up-coming book on Animal-Human Connection. Thanks for being part of our community of kind, thoughtful people who want respect for all.  

    Judy Helm Wright, Pet Grief Coach and author of "I Lost My Best Friend Today--Dealing With The Loss of a Beloved Pet."


    PS:  If you have a pet story to share please send it to judy@deathofmypet.com  and be sure to put PET STORY in the subject line.  You may be featured in an upcoming book.
