Lakeview Seniors Pet Therapy (Pet Owners Only)

Share the joy and love your pet brings to you with seniors who are receiving skilled nursing care! You and your pet will be joined by another volunteer to socialize with residents in their individual rooms. These friendly visits help minimize feelings of loneliness and isolation among residents, particularly those who are bedridden and can’t participate in other activities at the facility.

  • Any type of animal is welcome, as long as it is friendly, healthy, and up-to-date on shots.

  • Please bring two copies of your pet’s shot records the first time you participate.

  • If you do not have a pet but would like to participate, please search for the “Lakeview Seniors Pet Therapy (Non Pet Owners Only)” project.

  • Easy El access: Brown, Purple Lines

Partner: Lakeview Nursing and Rehabilitation Centre strives to meet the medical, cultural, and emotional needs of its residents, who are working toward independence for discharge or to lower-level care. Lakeview has been a Chicago Cares partner since 2003 for this project, one of multiple Chicago Cares programs at this site.
