Uncover the Positive Power of PetsThe pet and human connection is strong. For this week’s care mission, we want you to find ways to bring pets into a senior’s life.
According to reports, seniors who regularly interact with pets experience lower blood pressure, pain reduction, less loneliness and more happiness. But not everyone has a pet in their life to enjoy.
We challenge you to brighten a senior’s life with a pet. When you can’t do that in person, it gets a little trickier. These tips can help you share the joy of pets without being in close contact.
- Send photos of your pet.
- Have your pet make a guest appearance on your next video chat.
- Take your dog on walks so friends and neighbors can watch from a safe distance or inside their homes through the window.
- Film your dog doing tricks and send it to friends.
- Share a few good animal videos or happy pet stories.
If you know a senior with pets, check on them to see if they have enough food or need help walking their dog.
