Benefit Seniors Physically And Emotionally
Although the greatest independent living communities provide seniors with greater flexibility and peace of mind, a change in living arrangements might result in changes in other aspects of life. Some elders may experience new emotional challenges, such as feelings of loneliness or worry. Pets are a great method to deal with these concerns, which is why TerraBella Epps Bridge is a pet-friendly independent living community.

How our Pet-Friendly Retirement Community Keep Residents Active
A prevalent misperception is that active senior living communities only provide recreational activities to its residents through a gym or a rehabilitation facility. However, we realize that pets may help seniors stay active. Our pet-friendly independent living community has walking paths and plenty of green space to encourage our residents to be active. If they wish to, they give an opportunity to go on lengthy walks with their dogs. A simple walk with a pet might motivate seniors to get out more and exercise.
Pets not only keep our residents physically active, but they may also keep them psychologically engaged. Having the responsibility of caring for an animal keeps the mind sharp and alert. Residents can obtain a mental satisfaction from caring for another living thing by scheduling walks, potty breaks, feeding schedules, and periodic check-ups. When moving into an independent living community, it can be difficult to adjust to not having to care for children or other family members. A pet can assist to fill this emptiness by giving both mental and physical stimulation.
