Pet Therapy: The Remarkable Human & Animal Bond

We love when our furry four legged friends Brutus and Mazie come to visit us. Pets can have such a positive impact on aging adults, significantly reducing pain, anxiety, depression and fatigue, improving their overall psychological state. However, when life events happen, that can change our ability to care for a pet’s physically demanding needs.

We want to extend a special thank you to Tyler for bringing our canine friends for a visit!
