Hospice Calgary promotes a patient-focused environment that recognizes the bonds people have with their pets. Pets belonging to the patient are welcome to visit for a short time in the patient’s bedroom. Please ensure that they are on a leash or in a kennel when coming to the house, and go directly to the room.
Rosedale Hospice will work to reduce the risk of animal-human disease transmission during animal visitation, animal-assisted activities, and animal-therapy in accordance with Alberta Health Services and other mandated guidelines. Rosedale Hospice staff are available to ensure that the needs of both the patient and the pet are met.
