If you're a senior who's moving into a senior living community in Sacramento, don't worry about being able to bring your pet with you; the number of pet-friendly senior living communities is growing as these communities realize what a benefit it is to have a pet. Pets can provide seniors with companionship and improve their mental and physical health. However, caring for a pet in a senior living community can be challenging, so here are some tips on how to make it easier:

  • Make sure your pet is comfortable with their new surroundings before leaving them there alone. It may take a few days or weeks for them to adjust.
  • Don't forget to bring your pet's favorite toys and bedding so they feel at home. 
  • Be sure to schedule regular checkups with your veterinarian so that any health concerns can be addressed.
  • Make sure your pet always has plenty of water and food, and that their litter box is clean.
  • Follow any rules and regulations set forth by the senior living community regarding pets.
