Pets at Holiday Senior Living

Four-legged friends welcome.

Spend each day with those you love – pets included. At Holiday, we know your furry companion is part of your family, so they’re also part of ours.

Benefits of pets for older adults

Social connection

Who can resist petting a friendly dog? Whether you bump into neighbors while out walking Rover or swap silly cat photos, studies show pets can do wonders for your social life.

Physical health

From daily walks to hours of play, furry and frisky friends provide older adults with reasons to keep moving. Spending time with a pet can also lower blood pressure and cholesterol.

Emotional well-being

Feeling anxious or sad? Spend five minutes with your pet. They offer unconditional love, endless snuggles and so many excuses to act silly.

There are many ways to help your pet have a smooth transition to senior living – and it starts on moving day. Ask a friend or family member to watch your pet during the move itself. It will keep helpful paws out of the way and spare them anxiety. You can also ease the move by bringing your pet’s favorite toys, blankets and beds. It may seem counter-intuitive, but don’t wash blankets before the move so they retain the comfort of a familiar scent. Finally, make sure your pet is up to date on all their licenses, vaccines, medications and anything else your vet recommends.

Residents must be able to care for their pets as staff is not able to. Size and temperament assessed prior to move in.
