Missouri Assisted Living

Missouri is a midwestern state that provides a lot of high-quality elderly care facilities that include assisted living, memory care and other senior living options.

As is the trend nationally, Missouri assisted living homes are getting more pet friendly which means they now allow cats, and sometimes dogs.

Pet Friendly Assisted Living in Missouri - General Amenities

What separates a pet friendly assisted living home in Missouri from one that is not? The answer is there is not much of a difference aside from a few amenities and the obvious assertion that you will see animals around.

While pets are allowed in private residences and outside on the grounds to exercise and use the restroom, there are still a number of places they may not be allowed. And for those concerned about the noise that pets like dogs may make, the housing units are often divided between pet and non-pet owners.

The standard amenities expected in an assisted living complex still apply. The facilities are built to support a dining hall with daily meal services. Support staff is employed to help assist with medication management, housekeeping, laundry, and other chores. A number of health services are also provided.

Dogs that are highly recommended in assisted living homes include Boston Terriers, Poodles, Shih Tzus, Pugs, Chihuahuas and other small breeds.

Pet Friendly Amenities in Missouri Assisted Living Facilities

Missouri pet friendly assisted living complexes have amenities that are specific to pet owners.

Of course, you would expect any large senior living community to feature an outdoor area for pets which is exactly what you will find at most assisted living centers that allow pets. Dogs in particular like being outside where they can explore an area, interact with other dogs, use the restroom, and exercise. A fenced area reserved for dogs is really helpful.

Additionally, it is a really nice luxury for pet owners if the senior living facility offers some outside services as well. For example, some assisted living centers may hire a veterinary that shows up periodically to offer check-ups and other pet services.

Some staffs may also provide pet sitting or walking upon request. Whether the service is included with your monthly rent, or an extra charge, depends on the assisted living provider. Pet walkers are really helpful for the elderly. A sitter can also watch an animal while a senior citizen is away visiting family or at an appointment.

Assisted Living with Pets in Missouri - Different Types of Pet Policies

What are the policies regarding pets for elderly care facilities? It really depends on the assisted living provider.

Some assisted living communities continue to have a zero-tolerance policy regarding pets. It means absolutely no animals. On the opposite spectrum some support a wide number of dog breeds and sizes. Pet policies are very different from one senior living facility to another.

Consequently, you should ask a number of questions at your original appointment and tour of the senior care home. Some questions that pet owners should ask include:

What are the rules for having pets indoors? Is there any place they are never allowed?

What is the deposit for having a pet live in the private residence? Is any part of the deposit refundable?

Is there a safe place to take a dog or cat for a walk? What about after dark?

Please make sure that if you have a pet you always pick up after its waste.
