If you have a pet that’s everything to you, you would never consider moving anywhere without them. This can put some pet owners off moving into a senior living community, although everything else points towards this decision. When you decide on a pet friendly community like GreenTree At Westwood, you can have it all. Here, we are all family, and that includes your pet should you choose to bring them along.

About Our Pet Friendly Community

At GreenTree At Westwood, we understand that many potential residents have beloved pets they cannot leave behind. We want you to make the best possible decision for yourself or your loved one, and our pet friendly community ensures that you are able to do just that. Pets will be evaluated on a case-by-case basis to determine their suitability for community life – if your pet is not overly loud or aggressive, you have nothing to worry about. Keep in mind that we don’t accept certain species of exotic birds. Most cat and dog breeds are welcome after an evaluation to ascertain that they will not cause disruption to other residents.

Benefits of Having a Pet Friendly Environment in Your Senior Living Community

We strongly believe that having a pet friendly senior living community can benefit our residents in the following ways:

  • Promote meaningful interaction between residents with pets as a common topic to bond over
  • Provide companionship for residents, which can result in better mental and physical health
  • Instill a sense of purpose in residents when they are responsible for the care and grooming of their pets
  • … and more!

When Should You Consider Moving into a Senior Living Community?

There’s no denying that aging in place can be great when it works out, but that’s not always the case. If you are finding yourself increasingly socially isolated at home with your pet as your only companion, moving to a senior living community can be good for you. The best part is that you can bring your pet along, giving you the best of both worlds. In a senior living community, you will always be surrounded by friendly faces and welcoming smiles. With the socialization opportunities and recreational activities on offer, you can expect to see an improvement in your mental health within a short time.
