At Village at Proprietors Green, we know that visiting with animals can lift the spirits and promote a sense of well-being. Research indicates our beloved animals encourage walking, lower blood pressure, ease anxiety and promote social interaction in settings such as a senior retirement community.
One look at Village at Proprietors Green’s Gracie, a one-and-a-half-year old Havanese who serves as a Pet Therapy pup, and it’s easy to see how she assists in promoting a sense of health and well-being.
