Pets provide a comfort system that actually produces a chemical chain reaction to help lower levels of cortisol, a stress-inducing hormone, and increase levels of serotonin, the feel-good hormone. That’s why our Pets Are Welcome (PAW) Program invites four-legged friends to enjoy our Spring Cottage Memory Care Environments and other senior living communities.
For residents struggling with life events beyond their control, taking care of a beloved pet increases mobility, inspires an independent spirit, and intrigues the mind with a sense of purpose. Four-legged friends also create much-needed structure and routine to our days, especially as we age. And best yet – their steadfast companionship, loyal devotion, and unconditional love promote overall well-being and happiness.
