Great Days for Seniors (The Club), which provides a home-like environment where people who have medical needs receive one-on-one attention from the professional staff, got a special visit from Chester--a dog registered by Therapy Dogs International. Interaction with pets has important therapeutic benefits for seniors with memory loss and other medical needs, and they absolutely loved Chester!

Club members come not only to receive assistance with some of the challenges of daily life such as remembering to take medication, personal care and care management, but also to talk with friends and neighbors, exercise, learn about current events, play games, share a meal, enjoy music and sing, and celebrate birthdays and holidays together.
