Pet Therapy Program


The research supporting pet therapy for seniors abounds. Animal-assisted therapy has been shown to benefit seniors by improving depression and anxiety symptoms, and even improving heart health. Research shows that owning a pet improves a senior’s overall quality of life by providing physical, emotional and social benefits. Even occasional interactions with animals can enhance residents’ mood and behavior.

Physical Benefits

  1. Heart Health – Frequent interaction with a pet can lower blood pressure and cholesterol, decreasing the risk of cardiovascular disease.
  2. Improved Activity – Walking, grooming or playing with a pet increases the frequency of physical activity and exercise, which in turn has countless health benefits.
  3. Healthy Behavior – Those who own a pet tend to take better care of themselves. Caring for a pet helps to develop a routine, encouraging owners to eat regularly or complete chores and other tasks.

Social Benefits

  1. Increased Interaction – Walking a dog gets senior owners out of the house and increases their opportunities to socialize with neighbors.
  2. Encourages Conversation – A pet is often a great conversation starter and often provides common ground with others, especially with fellow pet owners.
  3. Stimulates Memory – Visiting with an animal can allow seniors to tap into memories of childhood pets and past experiences.
  4. Involvement in Activities – Studies show that pet owners are less likely to dwell on the past and pursue current activities, leading to social bonds and interaction.

Emotional Benefits

  1. Decreased Loneliness – Pets provide companionship, giving isolated seniors a source for affection, conversation and activity.
  2. Stress Relief – Being with a pet increases levels of serotonin, the “feel good” hormone that relieves stress. It also provides physical contact, which helps to calm anxiety.
  3. Better Self-Esteem – For seniors discouraged by their age, appearance or limited abilities, pets are welcome company, reminding seniors that they are still capable of being loved and needed.
  4. Sense of Purpose – The company of an animal provides a reason to get up in the morning. Pets combat depression symptoms by eliminating feelings of worthlessness or helplessness. Knowing that they are loved and needed enhances seniors’ mental health.

Telehealth Monitoring

Family Tree has partnered with the most trusted brand in telehealth services to improve access to care without the need to travel to a health care facility. Track key vital signs from the comfort of your home and receive alerts and nursing support if something is out of place. Family Tree’s Virtual Care Center is a low monthly cost and can be used in conjunction with other Family Tree services or on its own.

Telemedicine, also referred to as Telehealth, refers to “the use of technology to deliver health care services and information in order to improve access, quality and cost.” Specifically, it utilizes technologies such as remote monitoring through various devices (scale, blood pressure cuff, pulse oximeter, etc.), telephone calls and videoconferencing to enhance access to care in the home.

How it works

  1. Request a demonstration at no cost
  2. Receive your tablet and Bluetooth peripheral devices at home
  3. An expert from Family Tree will set up products for you at home

What’s involved

  1. Remote patient monitoring of vital signs
  2. Medication reminders/management
  3. Incident reporting
  4. On-demand access to educational information
  5. On-demand access to clinical experts
  6. Secure video visits

Benefits to seniors:

  1. Aging in Place is Safer
    Telehealth devices can monitor heart rate, blood pressure, blood sugar and more, allowing a clinician from Family Tree to keep close watch on a patient from a distance and send help if needed.
  2. Reduces Transportation Hassles
    Going to the doctor can be tough for seniors for many reasons. Some seniors live far from the doctor and others don’t drive. For some, it’s nearly impossible to leave the house due to frailty, advanced illness, or dementia. Telehealth helps monitor chronic conditions, reducing the risk of a hospitalization and allowing patients to see a doctor from home when travel is problematic.
  3. Saves Money Due to Reduced Healthcare Costs
    Using remote monitoring technologies and/or online video consultations can lower the cost of ongoing treatment and office visits.
  4. Easy Monitoring of Chronic Conditions
    Telehealth helps medical professionals monitor chronic health conditions like COPD, heart failure, diabetes, obesity, and more. Along with remote video consultations for follow-up discussions, new systems allow for remote monitoring and transmission of important information like the patient’s weight, blood sugar and vital signs in real time.
  5. Seniors Can Receive an Experts Opinion Quickly
    Family Tree provides a nurse 7 days a week. In situations where you don’t know if you should call 911 to take your senior loved one to the hospital emergency room or if it can safely wait until morning, being able to talk to a doctor immediately is a reassuring and valuable service.
