TDI is dedicated to providing services to individuals living at home through our "Home Visit Program". With the assistance of our Therapy Dogs, our goal is to help people in need maintain and enhance the best possible level of independent living.
We provide services to people who may have a variety of medical and non-medical issues. Some have family while others live alone but the common trait is the need or desire for companionship from our handlers and their dogs.
Whether a hospice patient, an aging patient or a disabled individual, we hope to improve their quality of life by bringing our Therapy Dogs to their homes where they feel most comfortable. Often, the dogs add a sense of normalcy. Their visits help people feel as if their lives are a little better and at times, more complete. Life may seem more manageable, especially to one who has to stay in bed, if they spend some time with Therapy Dogs. Our visits help to promote healing because the patient is able touch and pet the dog. This allows them to feel like everyone else and their happiness and contentment helps them to do better.
Families are often the primary caregivers for a person who requires care at home. While we are visiting, we're able to give them some time to rest or do necessary chores as the dogs provide the love and companionship to the patient.
Therapy Dogs help people live a life with dignity and love through our "Home Visit Program". TDI dog teams aid in the healing process by providing emotional wellness and ultimately, making a difference in the lives of others.
