Pets for Health
Animals are good for the soul and for the elderly. Stay at home can be lonely and companionship is an important part of a healthy mind. Animals are proven companions.
 
As a home care provider we often see the differences of those who have pets and do not. For example, in East Stroudsburg, many of our elderly clients have pets and those that can have pets have a companion to comfort them during alone times. Alone times are frequent for many elderly patients.
 
Humans are naturally drawn to companionship, which is one of the many reasons why a large number of people want to own pets. Pets require a lot of care – almost as much as a child – and humans are happy to provide it. This is because the relationship between a pet and his or her owner is mutually beneficial, and science has started to prove it. According to the WALTHAM pocket book of human-animal interactions, owning a pet can have positive effects on one’s overall mental and physical wellbeing. WALTHAM has been an authority of scientific research of the nutrition and health of pets for more than 50 years.

This is my 4th week with HOG. I’ve been in the industry for over 20 plus years. I must say, HOG is by far the best home health care agency I’ve worked for. From the initial contact to the interview, and being hired, it was a seamless process. The owners genuinely care about their employees as does the entire office staff. I’ve never worked for a home health care company that genuinely cares for its employees. I look forward to many years with HOG.
