Pet ownership has been proved to improve one’s quality of life by allowing them to form strong and affectionate ties with their animals. As a result, TerraBella Southern Pines encourages tenants to have dogs, albeit they must not be too loud or huge so as to bother neighboring residents.

About Our Pet-Friendly Community

According to scientific studies, retirees who own dogs experience greater wellness and health benefits. As a result, not only will they be welcomed into our community, but our team will also assist homeowners with animal waste management and connect them with the best veterinarians in the area to assure the animals’ health. Becoming a member of the community will also allow you to socialize with other animal enthusiasts.

Benefits of Having a Pet-Friendly Community for Your Retirement Community

There are numerous advantages to living in a retirement community that encourages pet ownership. Depression avoidance is one of them. Seniors who live alone and without pets are more likely to get lonely and melancholy, which can affect their vitality in the long run. Owning and caring for an animal provides inspiration and an incentive to get out of bed each day, and while the animal may not be able to communicate verbally, their nonverbal signals are equally valuable.

Pets can also help retirees stay active. People over the age of 65 have a propensity to spend too much time sitting down indoors, which can contribute to a variety of maladies. However, pet owners, particularly those who have dogs, will spend more time outside walking them, which improves their circulation and gives them more exposure to sunlight.

Finally, studies show that folks who spend time with animals have lower blood pressure, which is beneficial to aging retirees. And it appears that just being among animals promotes relaxation while also reducing stress.
