Everyone knows that petting a dog or cat is known to have calming effects on your body. A pet can bring many health benefits to its owner, including lower cholesterol and even helping them fight depression.
Unfortunately, due to the current COVID-19 pandemic, we weren’t able to bring in live pets. But that didn’t stop us, as our residents got to spend some time with adorable life-like pets. We hope to see the same smiles on our residents’ faces when we can bring the real animals back into Fort Tryon.
