Benefits of an Emotional Support Animal

Did you know that doctors can prescribe an emotional support animal? Many people live with mental illnesses or dementia, are on the autism spectrum, or are affected by anxiety or loneliness. It is becoming more common for doctors, along with prescribing necessary medications, to prescribe an emotional support animal. These animals, typically cats and dogs, provide emotional comfort, social interaction, and stress relief. Can’t own animals where you live? Try a visit from Village Rose Home Healthcare’s support dog, Benji. This sweet Yorkie and his care-aide owner will bring joy and comfort with a visit to your home.
