It should come as no surprise that pets provide many benefits. According to multiple studies, owning pets is hugely beneficial for older adults and has been found to increase one’s quality of life. Since TerraBella Northridge commits to providing a holistic lifestyle for all our residents, we not only allow residents to keep pets in the community but also actively encourage them to become pet owners as well.

About Our Pet-Friendly Community

While we do pride ourselves in being a pet-friendly community, we have set a few rules and regulations in place. This is so to maintain the peace in our retirement community and prevent any arguments among residents. Before your loved ones move into our community, each pet will have to undergo a thorough check by our team members in order to ensure that the pets aren’t too loud or disruptive and can socialize with other animals and residents. You’ll also be glad to know that our team members have adequate experience in dealing with animal waste management, grooming, and access to the city’s leading veterinarians, which comes in handy when the pets are in need of medical attention.

Benefits of a Pet-Friendly Community in Your Retirement Living Community

Aging brings about a number of issues, such as social isolation, lack of physical engagement, lack of purpose in life, and many more. All these issues can be extremely detrimental to one’s overall health. Therefore, here at TerraBella Northridge, we’re always finding new and effective ways to ensure our residents do not suffer from these problems. One of these ways is to own a pet. Owning pets gives a sense of purpose to older adults as they now have responsibilities to take care of, like feeding the pets and walking them. What’s more, pets provide a reason for the elderly to head outdoors more often and lead an active lifestyle, thus improving their physical health. Owning pets is also good for the mind as pets make wonderful companions, helping to reduce stress and lower blood pressure.

When Should You Consider Moving Into a Retirement Community?

What makes TerraBella Northridge stands out from other retirement communities in Raleigh, North Carolina is our pet-friendly policy. We welcome and even encourage residents to have furry friends in the community as we are aware of the benefits that come with owning them.
