Pets and loneliness
Individuals who find themselves alone may consider getting a pet for company. Why is this a good idea?
For individuals, who do not have a regular work schedule, it gives purpose in life. Pets need care. They need fed, walked, exercised, played with, and groomed. They love companions and evidence-based research shows that pets’ help lowering blood pressure, help the individual to maintain memory, and for those with medical conditions or behavior issues, service animals are perfect.
Pets can also help protect individuals by alerting to gases, strangers, and earthquakes. Beneficial for the individual who lives alone. Pets can also help discern, if the individual is doing okay, by the care of both the individual and the pet. This can be the first signs that there is a need of community services in the home.
Recommendations: If the individual decides on a pet, please seriously consider a rescued pet from a shelter or one in need of a good home.
