)-- The Daisy Project Launched
Daisy Project seeks to increase pet visitation in nursing homes.
The Merriman Good Life Foundation has launched a campaign called the Daisy Project. The Daisy Project is aimed at raising awareness of the general public to the value of pets visiting residents of nursing homes and other institutions on a regular basis. Full details are available at www.TMGLFoundation.org.
Volunteering in nursing homes can be a difficult experience for many. By making a dog the purpose and focal point of regular visits to nursing homes, volunteers find that visits are comfortable and fulfilling for residents, dogs and their owners.
The Daisy Project is seeking to not only to raise awareness but also inform owners and their dogs of the best way for getting plugged into nursing homes. They will also be documenting stories of life changing encounters that dogs have in nursing homes throughout the state of Ohio and across the nation.
"We have seen first hand what this dog named Daisy has meant to the residents of The Merriman. The purpose of the Daisy Project is to encourage other dogs and their owners to reach out to nursing home residents by visiting regularly," said Mayor Don Robart, Chairman of The Merriman Good Life Foundation.
