Caregivers Volunteers of Central Jersey


Caregivers Volunteers of Central Jersey
Toms River, NJ

The $3,500 PDF grant will support this free volunteer-driven program that brings together those who love both dogs and people for visits to individuals with Alzheimer’s disease or dementia, and homebound, frail, isolated senior citizens in their own home through long-term one-on-one matches. They are working to replicate Caregiver Canines throughout New Jersey and train other nonprofit agencies and businesses such as hospices and home health care agencies how to begin a home-based therapy dog visitation program.
