As we get older, we experience a number of psychological and physical problems. Having a pet can significantly lessen these difficulties. read more
We have a therapy dog, a Leonberger (think huge and hairy) and when he visits the nursing home, the old people just grin and reach out to touch him. It really makes them happy to have that normalcy in their lives if only for a little while. The dog has a calming effect on many of them.
Yes, but not just therapy dogs & not just the elderly. Studies have shown that pets in general, play a vital roll in people's over all health, by lowering blood pressure and decreasing the chances of heart attack & stroke. People with pets live longer than non pet owners.
I once watched a documentary that seemed to indicate that it does.
Yes, I think it does. Dogs and cats always bring a smile to people's faces, especially people who are confined to hospitals where they're stuck seeing and experiencing the same things every day. Dogs are adorable and they can bring anyone out of their funk
Yes. Absolutely. Even though time speeds up as one gets older, the days are very long when the world is too busy for them to matter. The love and devotion provided by pets give the elderly a much needed boost in their emotional well-being and every time they open a tin of food and feed their pet, they are contributing to the well-being of another which, in turn, instils a feeling of purposefulness.
