Melody Living Lake in the Hills’ assisted living community is embracing “Love Your Pet Day.” We are proud to welcome small pets like cats and dogs with open arms. These pets make the move into a senior living community a lot more comfortable for our residents.
Our current four-legged residents include, Guido and Bandit, the schnauzer. Three cats also call Melody Living Lake in the Hills home. Smokey, Austin and Mr. Big are a few new furry friends moving in this week. Our animal companions improve the overall wellness of the humans around them. Here’s how…
CompanionshipHaving a pet in a senior living community can create a sense of peace, familiarity, and duty. Pets within our community are also great for residents who may live alone as that extra sense of company and companionship can make all the difference in their day. Residents who don't have pets often look forward to visiting with dogs as they stroll along our outdoor paths at our senior housing community. Studies indicate petting a dog or cat is also an automatic stress reliever.
