Have you got a furry friend to keep you company at home?
Did you know that “Daisy” and “Charlie” can help keep your brain healthier longer?
It’s science! Check it out…
Studies have shown that spending time with our furry family members has the following benefits:
Lowers the stress-hormone cortisol
Increases the feel-good hormone serotonin
Improves overall mood
Can lessen symptoms of depression
Social and emotional support for those with dementia
These positive results are why pet therapy is becoming so popular for many people!
