“I met a dog named Lily today,” said Joan Piccard, an 82-year-old resident of Merwick Care and Rehabilitation Center in Plainsboro. “She brightened my day. I love dogs.”
Piccard and other residents of Merwick recently enjoyed a visit by the Maltipoo and her owner, Kate Hammett, a volunteer with Therapy Dogs International. TDI Members like Piccard regularly visit nursing homes, hospitals and other institutions with their dogs to provide companionship to patients.
