Wingate Residences on the East Side

Our PCKC Education Committee activity in the memory care unit of Wingate Residences on the East Side, 1 Butler Avenue, Providence, RI is scheduled for 2:00 PM on Thursday, May 30, 2024. We will also be going there on Thursday, June 27th at 2:00 PM.

While your dog does not have to be a registered therapy dog to take part in this activity, it needs to be able to be calm in a group setting with people and other dogs. It should be well housebroken and clean. We recommend CGC or better testing for any dog that will be brought into a communal visit situation.

Please bring information about the history and purpose of your breed. You can present the material or if you prefer, either John or I will handle talking about your breed if you would rather not speak to the group. You will have a chance to show off your dog and perhaps do a trick or two in front of the group. If appropriate, you can mingle with the residents with your dog near the end of the visit.

Since this is a memory care unit, you should be prepared to deal with people who say unexpected things and ask the same questions repeatedly.

Please do not participate if you have not been vaccinated. If you or your dog are not feeling well, please stay home.
