Therapy Animals

If you’ve ever owned a pet, you know how much joy they can bring, but they also come with many physical and mental health benefits. That’s why therapy animals have become so prominent. When we think of therapy animals, most of us will think of dogs, but there are so many other therapy animals out there!

Dogs

You can’t talk about therapy animals without mentioning dogs. Dogs are some of the most popular therapy animals because they are so affectionate. Any dog can be a therapy dog, but lap dogs are better for seniors as they are small and can comfortably sit in laps.

Cats

We don’t always hear much about therapy cats, but they are getting more popular. One reason is because petting animals helps releases feel-good chemicals (like serotonin) in the brain, and cats rhythmic purring can help soothe individuals with dementia. Another benefit of cats is that they aren’t as boisterous as dogs, which may be better for certain people.

Horses

Horses have also started making an appearance as therapy animals. There are two ways horses can provide therapy, one way is at the organization’s locations, where people can engage in therapeutic activities, such as grooming, feeding and leading the horses (some organizations also have therapeutic riding). The other way horses can provide therapy is by actually going to a facility to visit patients. Now, you may be thinking that horses are much too big, but there are actually many organizations that specialize in equine therapy with miniature horses or Shetland ponies!

Monkeys

Monkeys are one of the therapy animals that we don’t normally hear much about. It may sound strange, but monkey are small, intelligent, dexterous and very affectionate. Monkeys don’t only provide company, they can actually help with tasks. Capuchin monkeys are perfect for this job as they have very dexterous hands and great fine motor skills.

The list doesn’t stop there; there are so many other animals, like alpacas and sheep, that can also be therapy animals!

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.
