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. Some seniors will choose to do without so that their pets have what they need.
That's why the seniors who receive our Home Delivered Meals can participate in our Pet Support program. This program provides dog and cat food as well as veterinary support to ease the burden of caring for their furry friends.
Adult dogs receive Ultimate’s chicken and rice dog food and senior dogs receive Canidae platinum formula. Dog food is portioned in 7-pound bags and seniors receive deliveries based on the size of the dog.
Cats receive Sportsmix chicken and rice cat food.
Pets receive a consistent type of food each week which helps the pet’s digestion and reduces upset stomachs.
Those who receive home delivered meals receive their pet food as part of the same delivery.
Our Pet Support program also provides vouchers for veterinary services which our seniors might not otherwise be able to afford.
We understand that by taking care of one, you're taking care of the other.

Finding a Pet for Everyone
We know that many seniors desire the companionship of a four-legged friend. Unfortunately, some seniors are not able to care for a pet or they live in a facility that does not allow animals. Understanding the challenge, we are excited to offer robotic pets to our seniors . These lifelike companions serve as a lovable fill-in for the real thing. The cats purr and nuzzle. The dogs bark softly and pant. These pets are also 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. Such spontaneous visits help seniors combat feelings of loneliness while bonding over a love of animals.
