Aging in Place with Pets Internship (Unpaid)

In this unique, hybrid (combining in-person and remote work) internship, students address barriers to the instrumental activity of daily living (IADL) of the care of pets among older adults, which has notably been referred to as the “forgotten” (and, unfortunately, even “neglected”) IADL for this vulnerable, and diverse, population. Students will have the opportunity to establish, and maintain, relationships with older adults over a semester- to year-long internship, so that they, like their pets, can reduce their sense of social isolation and loneliness within the comfort of their home, and improve their sense of belonging within the safety of their independent (or assisted) living community.

We are looking for students who are creative, innovative, empathetic, and, most importantly, holistic, and dedicated to making a positive difference in the lives of both older adults and their pets. In collaboration with Cathedral Square residents and/or SASH participants, interns provide support and services such as:

  • Developing or updating “healthy living plans for pets” to promote safety, independence, and effectiveness in the care of pets.
  • Performing important tasks of this IADL such as grooming cats and dogs and walking dogs.
  • Facilitating arts and crafts groups (and other groups) relating to pets such as making toys for cats and dogs and clothing for dogs.
  • Collaborating with veterinarians and other veterinary medicine professionals.
  • Collaborating with other nonprofit, social service organizations such as with animal shelters to support the adoption and prevent the relinquishment (or, more aptly, “surrender”) of pets.

Qualifications

This internship opportunity is eligible for individuals who are completing undergraduate or graduate degree programs including (but not limited to): occupational therapy, psychology, public health, social work, and veterinary medicine as well as art, marketing, and writing.

Hours and Locations: 412 Farrell St South Burlington, VT, 35 Cambrian Way Burlington, VT,75 Harrington Avenue Shelburne, VT, and 1197 North Avenue Burlington, VT. Hours range from 4 - 20 hours/week depending on the individual's schedule.
