Pets are affectionate friends who are always there to put a smile on your face. Having a pet provides many health benefits from lowering stress, to increasing feelings of companionship and wellbeing. Caring for a pet improves social interaction, slows cognitive decline, and correlates to increased appetite. Pets even help their senior owners develop daily routines which strengthen short-term memory and provide feelings of fulfillment for seniors. The comfort of a pet is even shown to reduce feelings of agitation and anxiety in residents with dementia or memory impairments.
Pets are family – and your family is our family! Our community is great for two-legged and four-legged friends. Your furry friend can enjoy a walk in our secure courtyard or a midday cat nap in your comfy apartment. Plus, it’s a great excuse to get outside for a leisurely walk taking in a breath of fresh air or experiencing the sights of nature. Contact your local Inspired Living for pet policy details. We can even help you arrange for a local dog walker to lend a hand with care needs.
Off-leash Dog Park
What’s the best way to enjoy a beautiful day with your beloved pooch? A stroll to the off-leash dog park. Our assisted living communities feature a dedicated, fenced-in area where dogs can play off-leash. Not only are our off-leash dog parks the perfect place for our furry friends to exercise, socialize, and enjoy the outdoors, they offer the same great experiences for their owners, too! Walking and playing fetch are great ways for seniors to stay keep active, improving health, sleep quality, and overall feelings of well-being.
Off-leash dog parks are something to bark about with such amazing health benefits to all of our residents, whether they have four legs or two!
