ComPAWnions for Life also offers a pet finding service, matching senior pets with senior people…
Senior citizens and senior pets are a great match in many ways, specifically with their energy levels and physical needs. Older pets often suffer from arthritis and can’t keep up with an active owner. Shorter walks and more time lounging and living the good life is fine by them!
Older felines love a quiet home and a warm lap to relax and take a nice cat-nap on... And in general, senior dogs and cats are gentler, calmer, and the biggest benefit of all, already housebroken and trained with basic commands!
Studies show that older pet-owning citizens have lower blood pressure and cholesterol levels than non-owners, helping to reduce their risk for heart disease and decrease their number of visits to the doctor. Additionally, a number of other studies suggest that pet owners have a better chance for long-term survival after surviving a coronary event than non-pet owners.
Assisted living and nursing homes can be lonely places, and having a dog wag his tail in response to your love and care can really lift your spirits and inspire you to live every day to its fullest. No one knows genuine appreciation like a mature pet; you fulfilled their last hope the day you welcomed them home.
According to a study in the Journal of the American Geriatrics Society, caring for a cat or dog helps elderly people overcome depression or loneliness. Whether that be from the loss of a loved one, not having family or friends nearby to interact with, or not being able to get out much In fact, pets are not only beneficial to their owners, but have also proven to have positive effects on other senior residents at assisted living facilities.
