Our beloved PetPals program is managed by our partner FriendshipWorks and we are grateful to have a few dogs and one cat that visit Sherrill House regularly.

Numerous studies have shown that pet visitation programs increase social interaction among long-term-care residents, reduce agitation in Alzheimer’s/Demntia patients, and ease the pervasive loneliness that often occurs in the elderly.

If you are interested in becoming a FriendshipWorks PetPals volunteer, please call 617-482-1510.
