What Are the Positives About Living with Animals?
For many, pets make life more meaningful by providing joy and companionship. For seniors wishing to remain healthy and active, pets allow them to establish a daily routine, often including exercise. Dogs require daily walks, giving their owners an excuse to go outdoors for a breath of fresh air. Even a cat encourages exercise through daily indoor playtime with their various toys. Thanks to their unconditional love, furry companions often make seniors feel less isolated or depressed. Pets can positively affect a person’s mental and physical health. Bonding with an animal can lower a person’s blood pressure and stress levels while also providing a distraction from the pain or discomfort of aging.
Benefits of Living in a Pet-Friendly Retirement Community
Finding a pet-friendly retirement community is a priority for many seniors who wonder what will become of their pets when they make this transition. At Larkspur at Shadow Creek, we make pet-friendly independent senior living a reality for residents who are animal lovers at heart. Animal companionship fosters better mental, spiritual, and physical health. The act of caring for a pet keeps seniors active and engaged. It’s difficult to remain in poor spirits with animals around all day. Even if you don’t have a pet, other residents in our community may be willing to share the happiness and comfort theirs bring with you on our walking trails and other communal recreational areas.
What to Consider Before Bringing Your Pet to Larkspur
For the safety and well-being of other residents, pets must be vaccinated and exhibit good behavior before bringing them to our pet-friendly 55+ retirement community. Residents are responsible for pet care and must have someone who can take their pets when they are no longer able to manage pet care on their own. Our campus includes several walking trails and a dog park to accommodate you and your fur babies. Those feeling more adventurous may wish to get out and explore the nearby neighborhood, featuring over 175 parkland acres for plenty of hiking and picnicking in scenic surroundings.
