Assisted living homes that support assistance for people dealing with early forms of dementia, or hopefully preventing it, have found that animals provide a lot of coping strategies. However, pets can only be effective when they are also well taken care of.

As a result, it is important to find a senior living facility that not only wants to take good care of you but also your cat or dog. For starters, you should tour the complex and make sure that the private residence is appropriate for your animal. Do they have enough space? Will they have trouble adjusting to having neighbors in close proximity? What about staff stopping by on a frequent basis?

Pet amenities should include basic accommodations like an outdoor park. The area can provide means for animals to use the restroom and get exercise. It may also provide social interaction for them where they can make friends with neighboring pets. A walking path is another nice feature.
