They Provide Companionship
Seniors who live alone often struggle with the loneliness they experience. Their spouse might no longer be living or they are divorced, and the kids and grandkids have moved out. Companionship is really important at every stage of life, but especially for older adults since they might not get out and socialize as much as they used to. With a pet at home, they have someone offering them unconditional love, who is always excited to see them, and who will provide loyal companionship every day.
