Interacting with Pets Can Have a Direct Impact on Your Health and Wellbeing

Studies have shown that interacting with pets can lower blood pressure, increase levels of serotonin, reduce depression, and help mitigate the social withdrawal that is often associated with dementia.

With A Hand to Hold, it isn’t necessary to take on the full responsibility ownership to reap the physical and emotional benefits of a relationship with an animal. A Hand to Hold’s Pet Therapy Program gives senior animal lovers the chance to interact with a pet without the responsibility of providing full-time care.
