You’ll make countless new friends at a Holiday Retirement community, but that doesn't mean leaving your furry friends behind. We strongly believe in the life-affirming power of pets and are delighted to have dogs and cats as part of the rich fabric of our communities!
Studies have shown that pets can have a profoundly healthy impact on owners, most notably in seniors. The benefits of pet ownership include decreasing blood pressure and feelings of loneliness as well as lowering cholesterol and triglyceride levels.
At Holiday, pets are residents too. Here are some resources to help you find the perfect pet and stories about our favorite, furry residents!
