About Our Pet Friendly Senior Living Community
Discovery Commons Virginia Beach, we understand how animals are well-loved by everyone including seniors. There is always that special bond created by owners with their pets which we do not wish to see severed when residents move into our community. By being a pet friendly community, residents can continue living with their beloved fur friends to enjoy the lasting companionship that offers plenty of physical and health benefits.
Benefits of Being a Pet Friendly Senior Living Community
Seniors stand to greatly benefit from pets, thanks to their friendly demeanor that residents will find comforting. Pets make us feel good and residents of our community can talk or cuddle with their fur companions to ease plenty of different health conditions. Interacting with a pet through talks or cuddles can increase brain activity which in turn helps to mitigate the effects of depression. Pets also help keep our residents active when they bring their fur buddies for a walk or during regular play sessions. Socializing with other pet owners will also help encourage social interaction which is a great opportunity for our residents to forge new, meaningful relationships with their neighbors. All these activities that our residents get to enjoy with their pets can help reduce their triglyceride and cholesterol levels and improve their heart rates.
When Should You Consider Moving into a Senior Living Community?
There are several questions that family members can ask themselves about their loved ones to determine if the senior needs to consider moving into a senior assisted living community. The questions to ask include the following:
- Is their loved one eating regular, healthy, and well-balanced meals?
- Do they have daily access to nutritious food in their kitchen?
- Can they move around on their own safely? (check for accidental bruising or injuries)
- Are they able to perform daily personal tasks independently like personal grooming, showering, and others?
- Do they help with medication administration or general healthcare?
- Can they move to safety efficiently should an emergency situation arise?
If your senior loved one requires assistance in more than one general daily task, it is best for them to consider moving into a senior assisted living community. You can rest assured that their daily needs are well taken care of by professionals with years of experience.
