hospital visitation programme
Teams of RVO Club members visit various nursing homes, senior citizen centres and extended care units in the Fredericton area with their dogs. This programme allows residents of these homes an opportunity to pet, discuss and watch a variety of dogs. Each dog must pass RVOC’s Hospital Visitation Screening Test before being assigned to a visitation team. To qualify, participants must have a well behaved dog (one year or older), one level of basic obedience and the dog must pass a test that involves hospital equipment (ie. wheelchair, crutches, etc).
