The Power of Pets: Creating a Connection

By Barbara Worthington

Animals can open the lines of  communication with older adults, diminish their isolation, and even improve physical conditions.

Americans have long been a society of animal lovers. Animals provide companionship, unconditional love, and lifelong friendship. In 2007, 71.1 million U.S. households owned some type of pet, according to the American Pet Product Manufacturers Association. The study indicates that those households owned approximately 73.9 million dogs and 90.5 million cats.

These figures reinforce the knowledge that animals hold a special place in our homes and our hearts. Relationships with animals develop into bonds that strengthen significantly over time.
