NEW Ricardo’s Story
Ricardo came to the Program for Assertive Community Treatment (PACT) office on the fourth floor of the Bailey Building in Everett in late 2013. That’s where he met Daisy, our PACT service dog. Ricardo was the first client that Daisy met on her first day at Compass Health -- literally an instant bond. They sat together for quite some time that day.
We told Ricardo a little bit about her story and said that it was similar to what he had been through. She had been rescued from deplorable conditions. She had been “locked up” at the shelter, and had no one to rely on for help or comfort. She was homeless. This about floored him. His initial response was “did she do drugs too???” The staff laughed, and told him no that she was sober. Since this time they have been best of friends. Ricardo comes in every day to see her and the staff have noticed recently that he uses her as a coping skill. There are many times these days when Ricardo comes in feeling depressed and just silently sits with her. He tells staff that Daisy really picks up his mood and makes him feel better.
