People of all ages love their pets. In fact, two-thirds of U.S. households include an animal companion. Seniors are particularly fond of their furry friends, and with good reason: pets help seniors keep active, give them a sense of purpose, provide companionship and decrease stress.
Traditionally, seniors have had to part with their cherished companions when they move to an assisted living community, which can be distressing to both senior and pet. But this doesn’t have to be the case. More and more assisted living communities allow pets, though sometimes with limitations on their number or size. Download this directory of pet-friendly senior communities to discover options for pet-owning seniors in more than a dozen major metropolitan areas across the United States.
