Wisconsin Assisted Living

Wisconsin is home to some great assisted living communities. Many of Wisconsin senior living facilities are starting to become pet friendly. Some of assisted living homes now allow cats and/or dogs and more are becoming open to the possibility in the future.

Pet Friendly Assisted Living in Wisconsin - General Amenities

Wisconsin assisted living communities are comparable to what you would find in other states. When a facility labels itself as pet friendly what it usually means is that it allows cats, and sometimes dogs to live on premise.

Some senior living facilities may not be pet friendly as they do not allow animals to live on the property full time, yet might endorse therapy animals. In the last couple of decades therapy dogs have become common in nursing homes and other types of senior living for their companionship. Therapy dogs make reliable furry friends when the senior is unable to care for a pet full time. 

In other circumstances is it acceptable for the cat or dog to live in the private residence full-time. Most facilities recommend that the pet has already been with the senior citizen for some time. Pets that are comfortable with their handler are more prone to make the adjustment to a senior housing complex more smoothly.

In addition to allowing pets these types of senior homes are similar to other assisted living complexes. The facilities have helpful and caring staff that can assist you in a number of different ways. Staff is also able to manage medications and provide other basic needs that are not quite as hands on as nursing homes.

Pet Friendly Amenities in Wisconsin Assisted Living Facilities

Wisconsin assisted living facilities offer a number of different amenities for pets. Each facility is a little different in how they do business so the below amenities are generalities. Not every senior home is going to be the same.

Often the outdoor area will provide space for pets to go use the restroom, play, get exercise, and interact with other pets. Dogs are notorious for needing fresh air and room to roam so if you have a canine it is important to make sure they will have enough space outside.

The outdoor area should also be well lit at night and feel safe to seniors. Dogs can use the restroom at all hours of the night so making sure the place is secure is very important.

Some communities support other pet services. For example, they may invite a veterinary to do routine check-ups on occasion. Some may have access to nearby pet sitting or walking providers.

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