Benefits of having pets for the elderly

Those of us who have pets at home have it clear: having a dog or cat keeps you active and brings you countless moments of happiness.
With a pet at home you never feel alone, you always have someone waiting for you, someone who pampers you, someone who is dying to take a nap next to you. Someone for whom, in short, you are everything. And if this is gratifying for anyone, for the elderly it is fundamental.

A good companion in life, dog or cat, helps to ward off loneliness.
