Pet Care Matters

Generally speaking, pet owners, especially senior adults, enjoy better physical health and mental well-being than those without pets, according to both the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and the Journal of American Geriatrics. Studies have shown that pets can increase exercise and socialization activities and decrease blood pressure, cholesterol and triglyceride levels, and as well as loneliness. When older pet owners play with, groom, feed and exercise their pets, often their disposition and mobility improves, and elderly pet owners are shown to visit doctors with less frequency. Countless older adults are finding that a pet fills everyday life not just with companionship but also with added health benefits.

If possible, try to plan for contingency care just in case you cannot properly care for your pet. Some care facilities allow pets, but most do not. The sense of loss over a pet can feel devastating, so pet visitations, if allowed can help you still feel a part of your animal’s life.

If an unexpected surgery, accident or illness has you concerned about how you can provide care and keep your pet at home while you are recovering, Care Matters can assist you. We can provide your four-legged friend with the following services:

  • Pet feeding and food delivery
  • Dog walking and Bio breaks
  • Litter box or Cage cleaning
  • Pet transportation to veterinarians and groomers
  • In-home Pet sitting
