Pet Therapy & Aging

Many seniors in today’s fast paced society often find themselves feeling left behind and lonely. Especially those dealing with an illness or diagnoses that may leave them home bound. Depression can sometimes set in as a result of these feelings of seclusion, especially in individuals that once led generally active lifestyles.
