Caregiver Canines® is excited to announce a partnership with BAYADA Home Health Care located in Toms River. Caregiver Canines® is a visiting therapy dog program offered through Caregiver Volunteers of Central Jersey a 501c (3) interfaith organization that provides free services to seniors in Ocean and Monmouth County allowing them to remain living independently. Trained, certified therapy dogs are carefully matched with individuals and their caregivers that are over the age of 60 and no longer driving. They provide weekly visits in the comfort of one’s home.


BAYADA on Rt. 37 in Toms River provides personal care services and non-medical assistance with activities of daily living for adults and seniors when a health issue or aging has made it difficult to manage everyday tasks on their own. Carefully matching clients with highly trained aides who not only have the skills and experience to meet their needs, but also who would be a great fit personally sets BAYADA apart. BAYADA’s one-on-one approach to personal home care helps keep clients safe and cared for in the comfort of home, improving their quality of life and giving their families peace of mind.


“Caregiver Canines and BAYADA both understand the isolation and loneliness affecting our senior population. The human animal bond is very important to people that had a special pet in their life.  The visits from our therapy dogs can bring comfort and connection at a time when it is most needed,” says Lynette Whiteman, CVCJ Executive Director.


“BAYADA is proud to enhance the quality of life for so many of Ocean County’s seniors,” said Robert Richards, Director of the BAYADA office in Toms River. “With this new partnership, we’re thrilled to not only continue providing excellent care that matches our clients’ conditions, interests, and personalities, but believe this extra element of attention will add joy to the residents of Ocean County.”
