Senior Retirement Residence In Kansas City On Weekly Pet Visits

Our senior retirement residence in Kansas City, Clover Care Home, understands how weekly pet visits can help with senior memory care. We strive to provide personalized care services to meet the needs of each individual. Some seniors might need a little extra care when it comes to memory retention, and the love of animals is a great way to help resurface great memories of the past.

Weekly pet visits at Clover Care Home are proven to help improve senior’s memory, as well as their emotional, social and physical health. Our Pets For Life Program includes weekly visits from pets which always create a happier environment for everyone at our senior retirement residence in Kansas City.

Weekly pet visits can become a strong aspect of emotional support for seniors facing memory loss or dementia. Pet visits often give seniors a time of peace and can distract from negative emotions. It is proven that pet visits at our senior retirement residence in Kansas City can help increase mental health and often improve self-esteem because they don’t feel as isolated. Pet visits especially help with seniors who are used to animals around their home, but now don’t have access to them daily.

A core strength of senior memory care is social engagement. Weekly pet visits help to increase socialization between seniors. Healthy socialization is a goal at our senior retirement residence in Kansas City because it helps them to be more mentally stimulated.

Weekly pet visits also help to motivate seniors to stay physically healthy and active. Weekly pet visits allow mobile seniors to take dogs for a walk in a safe environment. Any activity with pets, even if it means playing fetch with a dog, is increased physical activity that is vital for senior health.

Our staff at Clover Care Home seeks to embody the individual values of our residents by attending to their physical, intellectual, social, emotional and spiritual needs. By offering a wide-range of services, including our Pets for Life Program, you can feel secure knowing that your loved one is as much a part of our family, as they are yours.

The care our mom has received at Clover Care has been nothing short of exceptional. The country setting helps to add to the inviting atmosphere in which our mom has thrived. The staff is always friendly, knowledgeable and caring. Clover Care has made a difficult situation seem like a natural transition in life.
