We all know that pets can bring joy and companionship to our lives, but did you know that they can also have incredible therapeutic benefits for seniors? That’s why we’re excited to introduce our newest furry team members, Buttons, Mingo, and Turbo, as part of our pet therapy program at Regis Eastern Shore.
Pet therapy, also known as animal-assisted therapy, has been shown to have a positive impact on the mental, emotional, and physical well-being of seniors. Here are some of the key benefits of pet therapy for our residents:
At Regis, we believe in the power of animal companionship and the positive effect it can have on our residents’ lives. That’s why we’re proud to offer pet therapy as part of our care services, with the help of our newest furry friends. Our team ensures that the animals have a comfortable and safe environment, including a moveable inside/outside hutch and an indoor play area.
We’ve witnessed firsthand the joy that Buttons, Mingo, and Turbo have brought to our community, and we’re excited to continue to incorporate pet therapy into our program. Stay tuned for more updates on our furry companions and the positive impact they have on our residents.
