What is Pet Therapy?

A form of Animal Assisted Therapy (AAT) that helps to improve quality of life.

Provides older adults with an opportunity to care for a pet of their own.

Helps your loved one to remain active, improves memory, and prevents depression.

Safe, side-effect free solution to improving mood and emotional health.

Pet Therapy Benefits

As older adults age, they experience diminishing health and must adapt to many life changes, and for some, it may be overwhelming to experience this alone. Pet therapy is a form of Animal Assisted Therapy (AAT) that engages seniors by providing access to a pet that they can care for. Our team understands the many challenges that come with aging, and we tailor our programs to meet your loved one and family’s needs.

Our pet therapy program is an approach to elderly care that helps clients acclimate to their environment while improving social, cognitive, and behavioral skills; we have a support staff on hand that is always available to answer questions and provides support. Sometimes, the best medicine is the kind the makes you smile!
