Pet Therapy Benefits

As older adults age, they experience diminishing health and must adapt to many life changes, and for some, it may be overwhelming to experience this alone. Pet therapy is a form of Animal Assisted Therapy (AAT) that engages seniors by providing access to a pet that they can care for. Our team understands the many challenges that come with aging, and we tailor our programs to meet your loved one and family’s needs.

Our pet therapy program is not only designed to address companionship needs, but pet therapy has been proven to improve cardiovascular health, boost self-efficacy, increase confidence, improve psychological functioning, and overall well-being. Our pet therapy program is an approach to elderly care that helps clients acclimate to their environment while improving social, cognitive, and behavioral skills; we have a support staff on hand that is always available to answer questions and provides support. Sometimes, the best medicine is the kind the makes you smile!
