Tennessee Assisted Living

Even if assisted living communities are filled with caring and loving staff, and ample opportunities to make new friends through scheduled activities most seniors still find the adjustment to a new living situation difficult. Many seniors are used to their routines and relocating to an assisted living home changes those aspects. Doing the move with a beloved pet can help ease the transition.

Staff that work at assisted living facilities in Tennessee do everything possible to help make a move to a new community seamless. It is why the facilities endorse socialization in the dining hall during meal times. It is why multiple activities are scheduled each day.

Regardless of these opportunities to feel more comfortable and make new friends, many seniors still feel withdrawn and not very communicative. Pets are the common link that connect us all.

When you visit different assisted living homes if you already live with a pet it is important to ask questions about their policies regarding pets. If the facility does allow cats and/or dogs you should then inquire about various amenities that are provided.

While it is nice that more assisted living complexes are allowing pets than ever before just giving that right is not enough. There should also be measures in place that help pets feel comfortable and safe within the facility. The same standards apply to outside on the grounds of the facility.

One of the most common amenities for pets at senior living homes is an outdoor dog park and area reserved for pets. Dogs in particular need room to go outside and explore. Here they can exercise and use the restroom. Designating a space outside for pets and fencing in the area is a nice feature. Please just make sure to clean up after your pet.

Secondly, the facility may have some in-house pet amenities. For example, some of the more luxurious assisted living centers provide a pet spa. Pet grooming services can get a pet looking up to par. Staff may also help with animals whether it is taking them for a walk or checking up on them while a resident is away for the day.
