What you need to know about pets and pet care services
As we get older we often get lonely. This loneliness might be a cause of living alone or a lack of interaction or simply because you have nothing to do. Having nothing to do contributes to the loneliness of an elderly person. As a solution to this loneliness of living alone, lack of interaction and lack of things to do, we at One Care Companion provide home care services in Naples South Florida and we want to give you a tip that just might turn things around—own a pet!
Pets have been shown to alleviate emotional and even physical wellbeing. As stated in the following article “Benefits of Pets for Older People”:
A study published in the Journal of the American Geriatrics Society demonstrated that independently living older people who had pets tended to have better physical health and mental wellbeing than those that did not.
They were more active, coped better with stress, and had better overall health, as well as significantly lower blood pressure overall, than their contemporaries without pets.
We understand how living independently as a senior citizen can get lonesome and one way to break out of this loneliness is through owning a pet. As a facility that offers home care services in Naples South Florida, we want to take care of you in every way we can.
Other benefits of owning a pet are, but not limited to, the following:
- Having a little work to do
- Great way of getting exercise
- Stress reduction –
