Pet Ownership Health Benefits for Seniors

Pets not only provide unconditional love and companionship, they can help reduce stress, lower blood pressure and increase social interaction. A dog or cat will encourage its owners to be more active. The daily routine of feeding your critter and taking him for a walk can also help fight depression. Going to the dog park or playing fetch in the yard are just a couple of ways a furry friend can increase your physical activity. A pet can provide:

  1. Reduction in loneliness and isolation
  2. Decrease in blood pressure and cholesterol levels
  3. Increase in mind stimulation and brain activity
  4. Increase in mind stimulation and brain activity
  5. A purpose to get up each day and move your body
  6. A higher level of happiness and fulfillment
  7. All of these benefits lead to being healthier and less likely to fall.
