Pet Therapy

In addition, I would like to recommend a few sites on the value of pet therapy.  

“Research studies have shown that pets or companion animals are beneficial to people, including the elderly.  These studies have concluded that all types of pets provide older persons with a sense of emotional and physical security; an opportunity for exchanges of affection; distraction from ones own problems; compensation for sensory loss; satisfaction of the need to touch and be touched, to smile and to laugh; a decrease in depression; and the incorporation of rhythm and structure into daily routine.  The animals seem to provide a boundless measure of acceptance, adoration, attention and unconditional love.”

-Quoted from the April 2002 issue (Vol. 10, No. 4) of Clinical Geriatrics, “The Therapeutic Use of Companion Animals,” by Antonios Likourezos, MA, MPH, Orah R. Burack, MA, and Melinda S. Lantz, MD
