Furry friends have a special way about them, and it has been proven that animals can improve senior health, especially on those Ruff days. Animals can bring to seniors:
- Lower blood pressure and pulse rate because animals have a calming effect.
- Improve mood and less depression because animals generate good feelings and lift the mood.
- Unconditional love and affection.
- Less loneliness.
It’s amazing the many benefits a pet can bring to people. We believe that pets truly are a blessing, and that’s why Wood Haven is a pet friendly health care center. After all, it has been said, “The best friend has fur and four legs.” We’re not fur sure who said this, but our suspicion leads us to believe that it was a dog.
