A New Service for Seniors and Their Care Givers

This past weekend, a new website launched – It was created to be an all encompassing site for people to reference when they have questions about caring for seniors. Per their site, “Caring for aging parents and loved ones has many rewards, but it can also be overwhelming, complicated, and exhausting. This is a time of tough decisions. Every day brings new challenges. And all the fine print—whether it’s on prescription warnings or legal and financial documents—is confusing. Take a deep breath. You’re not alone. You’ve found your village.”

Delta Society is honored to have been selected as the provider of information about how animals can help seniors live healthier and happier lives for this site. In addition to posted articles, there are several short videos which share information about Delta Society, the healing power of pets, and the Pet Partners experience. Pet Partner Betty Hume is featured sharing her experience of visiting seniors and hospice patients with her dog Caspian.

If you are a senior, or caring for one, check out this new website which is filled with information from experts across the country – as well as interspersed with people sharing their own personal stories and thoughts about aging and caring for loved ones.
