Visiting Angels Offers Pet Therapy

Visiting Angels (www.visitingangels.com/lincoln), a trusted healthcare service in Lincoln, has identified pet therapy for older adults as a very popular method of mild therapy. It can be very mentally, emotionally, and even physically beneficial for them. This is why Visiting Angels has a three-year old furry friend named Zeke (pictured) on their team.

Zeke is a licensed therapy dog who travels all over Lincoln, including retirement living centers, rehabilitation centers, and in seniors’ own homes, to provide older adults with companionship and to boost their general health and well-being. Benefits of pet therapy include improved communication, improved motor skills, increased independence, and a better quality of life.

Since 1998, Visiting Angels has been providing elder care services to families across the United States. They ensure that all care providers will provide clients with compassion, respect, and dignity while also tailoring a unique care plan for each older adult. The expertise of the care providers at Visiting Angels makes it possible for them to provide a wide range of in-home care services, including pet therapy.

If you have any questions about Zeke or where he will be next, contact Natalie Leon, owner and executive director of Visiting Angels, at (402) 735-0999 / nleon@visitingangels.com. More information about Visiting Angels can be found online at www.visitingangels.com/lincoln.
