Home Health Hint of the Week: Seniors & Pets

Seniors & Pets

Finding the Purrrrfect Pets

Nurses With Heart is excited to add another home health hint to our video blog – every week we will be posting a short video related to staying safe and healthy at home. This week we discuss the positive impact that having pets has on seniors.

Last week we reviewed the impact that social isolation can have on the elderly. One way to minimize the effects of social isolation is by integrating a pet into your daily life. However, it is important to find an animal that is compatible both with the individual’s lifestyle and environment. Check out the video below for more information.

Thanks for watching!
