It has been proven that having pets at home can significantly improve quality of life in older age and provide the essential companionship and stimulation that is so important as you grow older. Staying at home with pets can be key to maintaining independence and happiness which is why we can help with any pet care that may be required.
We understand just how important furry friends can be to a loved one, as a companion, something to fuss over and to talk to, so why should this change in old age? There are plenty of other crucial reasons why residing at home, in your own surroundings with your pet can be so beneficial in old age. It can help with maintaining a routine each day, help to combat loneliness, provide links and connections to past memories and even be the reason for getting out and about and meeting new people.
With our pet friendly care services pets can continue to stay at home with their owners as we can help take care of the responsibilities that come hand in hand with caring for a pet. We ensure that we match those who own pets with one of our experienced Care Specialists and find the best-fit for both client and carer. We are here to reassure families that both relative and pet are being well cared for and all responsibilities will be taken care of during their visits.
It can become increasingly difficult in old age or for those with reduced mobility or a long-term condition to bend down for feeding times or topping up water. We can schedule visits to feed and water pets each day and ensure pet food is restocked.
If regular walks are becoming difficult we can take some of the pressure off your loved ones and ensure pets are taken out for walks when required.
Washing and drying pet bedding, emptying litter trays, tidying up after pets and general hygiene.
We can assist with booking veterinary appointments or accompany your loved ones to appointments to provide extra support.
Especially with reduced mobility in older age it can be increasingly difficult to give pets the attention and care that they need, and many can struggle with physical tasks. At Bridgewater Home Care we have designed a service specifically for these reasons and want to take away the worry of being unable to continue these responsibilities. It is always a joy to see how happy our furry friends make our clients, and we want that enjoyment to last as long as possible, providing a helping hand for when things get too much.
We can help assist relatives to veterinary appointments that may arise or help to keep on top of check-ups, pet records and vaccinations etc. – putting your mind and your love one’s mind at ease!
