Welcome to the LifeCare Center of Longmont

Therapy Dog Program

LifeCare of Longmont is a vetted facility working closely with Therapy Dogs of Boulder County to bring some wonderful dog therapy to residents who greatly appreciate the interaction on a daily basis.  The LifeCare Therapy Dog program is a totally volunteer program and operates with team visits several days each week.

There teams (a team is a handler and dog) are signed up on a regular visiting schedule.  There are no floating schedules or visitations.  A monthly schedule is created and sent to all teams by administration just before the beginning of each new month.
