We Help Our Seniors' Best Friends, Too
Many of our seniors enjoy the company and companionship of four-legged friends. Pets can provide a remedy to loneliness and isolation, which many seniors experience.
Feeding and caring for their best friends can be expensive, though. Some seniors will choose to do without, so that their pets have what they need.
That's why we offer our seniors who receive our Home Delivered Meals, our Pet Support program that provides dog and cat food. We deliver pet food to our seniors, as needed.
Finding a Pet for Everyone
Some seniors are not able to care for a pet, or they live in a facility that does not allow for animals such as dogs or cats. Understanding the challenge - but still knowing the importance of having four-legged companionship for some seniors - we also offer robotic pets. These lifelike companions serve as a loveable fill-in for the real thing. The cats purr and nuzzle. The dogs bark softly and pant. They also are proving to be a great answer for the issue of social isolation. Those who have the pets are very popular among neighbors who want to see and pet the animals.
