Pet Friendly Assisted Living in New Jersey - General Amenities

Assisted living facilities have greatly changed their rules regarding pets in only a few short years. Previously it was extremely hard to find a senior living community that would allow the family dog or cat, forcing seniors to have to leave them behind once they moved.

However, that is all changing thanks to recent studies that support pet and elderly interaction. New studies have concluded that there are some links to pets and being able to potentially aid in the horrific diseases of Alzheimer’s and other forms of dementia.

Therefore, assisted living homes have greatly shifted their stance on pets. Now it is common for many retirement communities to also provide a home for your cat, dog, or other small animal. Of course, the restrictions vary depending on the assisted living facility, but overall that’s great news!

Pet friendly assisted living homes in New Jersey are basically the same thing as standard senior living facilities with the exception part, or all of the housing is open to pets. For senior residents that may be uncomfortable with living next to a resident that has a dog - assisted living complexes can also separate rooms that allow pets from rooms that do not, thus keeping the two types of people satisfied and everyone at the community happy.
