Animal Assisted Therapy - Waverly Clinics

There is a reason why dogs are considered man’s best friend. “Charm” is a service dog that acts as an extension of our therapy team that can improve physical, social, emotional and cognitive function. Charm has a calming influence on patients who have cognitive impairments, but can also aid in helping improve a patient's gait by serving as a moving walking aide. Animal Assisted Therapy helps improve compliance and overall performance, and can be used in an outpatient or hospital setting.
