Founded in 2002, Golden Moments 4 Elders is a family-owned and operated business, providing pet entertainment that enhances the lives of our elders through interaction with one of our Golden Retrievers.
We customize each and every session to fit each individual's needs and can accommodate group sessions with room-to-room visits at facilities as well as private one-on-one sessions between a resident and a Golden.
Our team now includes handlers Jeff, Sheila, and Jennifer and our Golden Retrievers, Chase, Bentley, and Myles. We are dedicated to providing compassion, comfort, and companionship while bringing you Golden Moments!
Our Golden's Can:
We look at each individual as if they were our own family member and seek to form a familiar bond with them and their families so that they are comfortable at each session. We also value our long-standing relationships with the facilities we frequent and our many contacts in the healthcare industry.
Our team (dogs included) are trained to maintain a friendly and familiar, yet professional and respectful relationship with each individual. We stay up-to-date with and follow all State Department of Public Health Guidelines.
We understand that each individual has different needs, which is why we do our best to get to know and understand them so that we can create the best Golden Moments possible.
We value being advocates for those we provide our services to in order to ensure their quality of life. We value honesty, and will always let the family and/or facility know if anything is unusual or out of place.
"Golden Moments' visits have been a true joy for our dog-loving residents! The Golden Retrievers are always so well behaved and so beautifully groomed. They love pets and the residents have big smiles in their presence. Not only has Jeff been a delight with whom to work, but he clearly loves his dogs as much as anyone could. He educates and entertains. One of the dogs is blind and inspires us with all that he is capable of doing. My experience with Golden Moments has been nothing but positive, uplifting, and rejuvenating for staff and residents, alike! "
