Therapy dog visits nursing home residents
April 1, 2020
Elizabeth “Tiger” Maynard-White and her therapy dog Duke greeted residents at the Harbor Village Nursing Home in New London in a new way, through the windows, on Tuesday, March 31, 2020.
The pair has been visiting since Duke was a puppy. In response to COVID-19 they didn’t want to stop visiting but wanted to adapt to social distancing rules.
“We don’t have that physical touch but we can still have the emotional touch,” said Maynard-White of why she continues to visit.
