We have a new member of the Insight family - Pender, our new therapy puppy!
Why puppy therapy?
There are many physical, mental, and emotional benefits of pet therapy. Friendly interactions with a therapy pet can help reduce blood pressure and improve overall cardiovascular health. It has also been shown to produce a calming effect through the release of endorphins, which can help alleviate pain, reduce stress, and improve your overall wellness!
What will he do at Insight?
Pender will be a regular visitor to all of our programs for participants and caregivers alike! He will be a friendly face for our participants in Reconnections and the adult day health center, and he will make visits to our caregiver support programs too.
Can I meet him?
Yes! You're welcome to stop by to say hi, and we hope you'll join us in welcoming him to our Insight family!
