Best Pets for Seniors

It’s no secret that pets are great for seniors. They provide love, companionship and can promote physical activity and social interaction. But not all pets are right for seniors, here are some of the best pets for seniors:

  • Dogs

If your senior relative is active, a dog might be a good fit. Dogs are loyal and affectionate companions and are a great way to help keep seniors active. When picking a dog, size will definitely matter. Bigger dogs might be too much work for seniors, so smaller dogs will be more manageable. Also keep in mind that dogs do bark, so a quieter breed might be a better option. Dogs do come with a little more work as they do need to be walked and groomed, but for the right senior, a dog will be a great pet.

  • Cats

Some people might think that cats aren’t the best companions, but cats can be just as affectionate as dogs.  The best part about a cat is that there is much less grooming and no walking to worry about. If grooming is a concern, pick a cat with a shorter coat.

  • Birds

Birds are low maintenance, while still being fairly interactive. Birds can be quite chatty, so if someone prefers quiet, certain types of birds, like parakeets, might not be the best fit.

  • Fish

The lowest maintenance of all… fish! Fish hardly require any work, as long as the tank is kept clean, which can be done with a good filtration system. Fish tanks create a relaxing environment, and there are so many fish to choose from!

So if you’re thinking of getting a pet for yourself, or an elderly relative, remember to choose wisely. Consider the person’s lifestyle and abilities before committing to a pet. But once you choose the right one, your loved one will love their new friend.

What People Are Saying About Us

I’d like to convey to you how wonderful the aide Afia is for my mother’s care. She has been with her since last January and has become more than just a caregiver. She truly “cares” and is skillful in her abilities. My mom has had several health situations and her current health has improved to the best she has been in several years. Both her doctor and my family attribute a large part of that to Afia’s care. She is diligent about her diet and sleep patterns, and her “toileting” issues. All of this has contributed greatly to my mom’s overall improved health and her peace of mind as well as our family’s peace of mind. We cannot say enough about her. We are also very satisfied with Executive Care all the way around, from the billing department and everyone we speak with on the phone, very courteous and professional.
Cindi E
It’s almost five years since we have been receiving caregivers through Executive Care, and I would like to take this transitional period to express our appreciation for the services you have provided thus far. We are particularly appreciative of the special attention and care Lili has given to our case. Lili has been very sensitive to our particular needs and it has been and remains important to us to have consistency in the arrangements by having Lili as our go-to person in light of Dr. E’s special needs. It is apparent that Lili has many other important responsibilities, so we wanted to thank Executive Care and Lili for the efforts she has made on our behalf.
Judge Naomi E
I have had business dealings with Executive Care for some time now and have invariably been very satisfied. The personnel have been considerate, trustworthy, capable and always responsive. They have provided a genuine physical and emotional lift to the patient, in my case an elderly, frail sister. I do not hesitate to recommend the organization for the services rendered.
