Garrett commented on The Unconditional Love of Companion Animals

Hi Liz, I too share this question. I wonder what kind of data out there supports both of our observations that therapy animals bring tremendous joy and comfort to patients. My sense also is that the elderly in particular often suffer from loneliness and boredom, so I wonder how we could ramp up visits from animals, whose guardians often work during the day.
