Visit any of our locations, and you’ll see a touch of home of a different kind – specifically, one with four legs and fur. At Spectrum, we understand the value of pet companions. Indeed, we welcome pets and pet visitors, and a quick survey of our caring staff reveals why:
“We have pet therapy as an activity -- the residents enjoy the interaction. Families also bring their pets, so it is another way to bring the family together.”
“Many evenings the resident and his dog sit on the front porch and the dog becomes the mascot. They all gather and enjoy visiting.”
“One resident has no children and very little family -- her cat is her life.”
“We have many cats and a few dogs that act as companion animals to our residents, but birds and fish are also welcome. We also allow pet visits from friends and family – our residents love seeing the grandpets and great-grandpets!”
“There is a powerful bond between people and their pets, particularly as they age. Our residents have a friendship and companionship with their pet that fills a void. They are comforted to know that they needn’t give up their pet when they come home to live with us.”
Pet policy details may vary by location, so be sure to ask during your tour. Meantime, let us extend a sincere welcome to your pet from some of ours -- Gizmo, Rex, Patches, Crust and Daisy – and from our staff. We look forward to meeting you!
"I love all the people I've met here. I have so many new friends. We play cards, laugh and share lots of stories."Resident
