The Power of Pets

Many people know the feeling of coming home after a stressful and frustrating day, only to be greeted by a furry friend at the door. You may ask yourself “Why was I stressed out in the first place?” amongst being licked by man’s best friend or hearing a cat’s loud purring. Yes, our pet companions bring a whole new level of love to our lives, and it isn’t any different when we get older.

As a blog article from A Place For Mom states, pets provide comfort that actually lowers stress-inducing hormones, and increase the “feel-good” ones. See, it isn’t just those big eyes. There’s actually science behind it! The article continues to state that pets have proven to lower blood pressure and help keep cholesterol levels low. Pets also deliver a sense of responsibility to people, which does more than you may think.

Most importantly, animals are there for you unconditionally. They provide happiness that just can’t be pinpointed. Seniors often have few family and friends for companionship, and an animal friend will change their whole world.
