Beautiful & Spacious Campus
A centrally located gazebo is always a favorite place to visit with neighbors while enjoying the scenic Colorado landscape in a comfortable and sunny spot.  The Hover Community offers many areas to sit and socialize with friends and neighbors.  A centrally located coffee bar is always a favorite place to visit with neighbors over a delicious cup of coffee.

 

Beatrice Hover 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.  The Beatrice Hover Assisted Living Therapy Dog program is a totally volunteer program and operates with team visits 2 days per week.

All teams (a team is a handler and dog) are signed up on a regular visiting schedule.  The team visit times are every Wednesday and Friday at 10am to 11am.  We will also be accepting “standby teams” to fill in when a regular team is absent. The team choices for visit scheduling are:

– Once each week, same day/time
– 2nd & 4th weeks of the month, same day/time
– 1st, 3rd & 5th weeks of the month, same day/time

All teams are required to take a schedule available to them using the above choices.  There are no floating schedules or visitations.  All teams are part of a group email list so they can communicate absences and emergency coverage.  A monthly schedule is created and sent to all teams and administration just before the beginning of each new month.

Requirements:

  1.  Therapy Dog Registration:  All teams must be registered with a therapy dog association.  The accepted registration memberships are:

– Alliance of Therapy Dogs (www.therapydogs.com)
– PetPartners(www.petpartners.org
– Therapy Dogs International (www.tdi-dog.org)

If you are not presently registered with any association, there are several tester/observers for Alliance of Therapy Dogs inside of our Therapy Dogs of Boulder County group who can help get you started on that process.  Use the “contact us” selection from the main menu and let us know you would like to be tested with your dog.

2.  A copy of proof regarding your dog is current on the Rabies Vaccination.  A vet record is acceptable.

3.  A copy of proof showing your dog was fecal tested and the test was negative within the last 12 months.
