We all know the saying that pets are famous for being a human’s best friend. This is the case, especially for your elderly loved one. As they age, your loved ones might start to feel lonely living by themselves. This might increase the risk of developing mental illnesses such as anxiety and depression. Here at TerraBella Little Avenue, we welcome you and your loved one to be a part of our retirement community. However, your pet should not disturb other residents or be too loud.
About Our Pet-Friendly Retirement Community
Research has proven that people who own a pet are less depressed and have healthier hearts. They too make significant changes to one’s health for those suffering from medical conditions such as asthma or allergies. Not only does TerraBella Little Avenue welcome you and your pet, but our team helps with tasks for your pet. This includes animal waste management and putting them under the care of top-notch veterinarians. As a pet owner, you will get to socialize and interact with other pet owners too, expanding your connections in the community.
Benefits of Having a Pet-Friendly Community in Your Retirement Living Community
It is important to consider the benefits of living in a pet-friendly community, especially health benefits. These include how pets can allow your loved one to:
- Keep their mind sharp: As your loved ones age, they require constant mental stimulation to keep an active lifestyle. With a pet in place, they will have to care for the pet which can lessen the risk of developing dementia. Their responsibility to look after the pet provides them with more of a sense of purpose in life.
- Lessened risk of heart disease: Many elderly face various heart problems. However, pets have a calming effect to them which can help your loved one feel less stressed and more at ease. It can also help to reduce their blood pressure.
- Remain active: Since pets need to be taken out for routine walks, it benefits your loved ones by keeping them active and healthy. Although our team is more than willing to do the job for you, you can choose to walk your pet too if you wish.
