The residents of Aston Gardens At Sun City Center are given the opportunity to bring along their pets. We recognize that these animals are often considered members of the family and provide a number of benefits, the least of which is companionship.
About Our Pet Friendly Community
We provide a safe, comfortable and secure environment that will accommodate a variety of small animals. Whether you want to bring a cat, dog, or something more exotic, they can be accepted into our community, and we have ample space for walking with them during the day. Because our community is gated, owners don’t have to worry about their pets becoming lost or stolen.
Benefits of Having a Pet Friendly Retirement Community
An alteration in one’s living arrangements can bring about emotional challenges such as anxiety or feelings of loneliness. Research shows that bringing a pet into a new environment is a great way to overcome these issues, which is one reason why our association is so open to them. Animals have been shown to help owners deal with anxiousness or depression, and they also provide feelings of security, which many retirees lack as they advance in age.
Perhaps the greatest benefit of keeping a pet is that it keeps you active and youthful regardless of your age. For instance, many breeds of dogs are active and like to play and be taken for walks on a daily basis, but elders who do not own them often spend too much time sitting down which can result in the development of a number of diseases. An active lifestyle is best and pets promote it.
When Should You Consider Moving into a Retirement Community?
Our community is designed for 55+ elders who are retired and looking for a place where they can kick back and relax without the hassles of managing their own household. They will retain the ability to live independently but will not have to worry about performing arduous chores such as housekeeping, yard work, maintenance, grocery shopping, meal preparation, and laundry, tasks that become tedious as one ages.
Instead, they will be able to spend their days socializing with the other members while their pets will keep them physically and mentally active. Caring for an animal will bring purpose to their lives as they will need to feed them on schedule while coordinating walks and the bond that they will develop is especially strong.
