Takoda

Takoda – Our Certified Therapy Dog

Meet Guardian Angel’s Takoda Viking, SWFL Geriatric Care Management LLC’s newest team member. Takoda is an ancient Norse name meaning “everyone’s friend” and that he is!

Takoda is a long haired German Shepherd who comes to us at 8 weeks old from Guardian Angel German Shepherds in Witchita, Kansas. Takoda will be working with us and over the next 10 months training to be a Certified Therapy Dog. He comes from a long line of purebred AKC German Shepherds who are bred for their loving temperament. We worked with Laurie Heins of Guardian Angel German Shepherds to find a puppy with just the right temperament for therapy work and she didn’t let us down.

SWFL Geriatric Care Management, LLC wanted to find a way to give back to our community. Takoda’s services are strictly free of charge. He will be incorporated into regular client visits when requested. Once he receives his Therapy Dog Certification he will be volunteering throughout the community in places such as Senior Facilities, Hospices, Hospitals and private homes.

Keep checking our blog and Facebook page to learn more about the beneficial work of Therapy Dogs and to follow Takoda’s progress. We are so blessed to have this amazing puppy join our team!

Our Testimonials

Wendy Hayes has provided my home bound client, an 87 year old retired clergyman, with the best possible care. I do not know what I would have done without the caring and compassionate services of Wendy and her staff. If I ever enter this stage of life, I will call on Wendy. You can’t go wrong here.

- Howard Crown, Attorney

My wife of 45 years had a Registered Nurse Degree. Because of her background in medicine, the family depended upon her authority in medical matters. When she died we were in shock having to be on our own. Luckily Wendy came into my life. She has served as my medical advocate and translator from “medical talk” to English. Without Wendy’s help I would have been at the mercy of the medical community for the last 3 years. She is the best thing to come in to my life in years.

- Al Breuning

Wendy Hayes [of SWFL Geriatric Care Management] is the most honest sincere professional down-to-earth person I know.
Wendy has changed my life. I have lost two wives and have no children. I was sad and depressed, but Wendy changed all that. Wendy has filled the void in my life – she is My Family. She moved me to my new home where I am so well taken care of and at the age of 91 I have never been happier because of her decisions.

- G. Zdanoff

Wendy Hayes of SWFL GERIATRIC CARE MANAGEMENT is the most knowledgeable, compassionate health care provider I know.
She provides the elderly and their families with extreme care with her expertise in the field. Wendy assures the elderly have their health needs met with dignity as they age, respects and reacts to their wishes and provides outstanding detailed medical attention with confidence to their doctors. She is organized, follows-up timely and accurately, she is worth her weight in gold.
