Everyone has a grandparent, a great aunt or uncle or even a family friend that is very elderly. Some may even know someone who lives in a nursing home or assisted living. These people get their visitors from time to time but do not get to always have as many activities as they would like. Or maybe they are at the point in their life where they could use some help mentally. This is where the animals come into play. Animals are not just for young people and the elderly would appreciate and love them just the same. These animals can be there to sit by the persons side and keep them company while they just lay in bed. They also can be there during free time to play. Just having something different to do for these people could brighten their day! It will make them feel young again by playing with these animals and take their mind off of any stress they may have.
