The companionship, loyalty and unconditional love and affection of a pet may offer many health benefits. Having a pet can also be a huge boost to a senior’s mood and happiness. A recent study of seniors 65 and older found that those who owned pets were more physically fit and less likely to have their health decline over the period of a year. Pets not only cultivate feelings of security and love but may also help lower their owners’ blood pressure, cholesterol and triglyceride levels. They can help reduce stress and increase social interaction and physical activity.
