New Pet Peace of Mind Hospice Program Keeps Pets and Families Together During Hospice Care


Lafayette, IN —May 1, 2019— PhysioCare Hospice is pleased to announce a new program aimed at helping hospice patients care for their pets. Pet Peace of Mind, which recognizes and actively supports the unique bond between hospice patients and their pets, launches today and aligns with PhysioCare Hospice’s mission to provide individualized care to terminally ill individuals and support to their family members anywhere they may live.


Pet Peace of Mind allows patients to complete their end of life journey without worrying about their pet’s current or future needs. The initiative provides volunteer pet care services for patients who are unable to care for their pets while on hospice. Services include assistance with pet needs, financial assistance with routine veterinary care, transporting the pet to veterinary appointments, pet boarding and walking, and foster/adoption.


Pet Peace of Mind, a national nonprofit headquartered in Salem, OR, offers the national program to hospices, hospitals and home health care agencies throughout the country.
