Program Description



"Pets extend lives…our staff can use pets as tools to get a person moving who otherwise wouldn't want to go outside…you know, come on Laura, lets take Candy out for a walk she needs to go out for a walk."

"Our residents often assign themselves to walk the dogs around the community. It becomes their "job" and caring for the pet, even just for a short stroll, gives them self-confidence." - Loren Shook, CEO Silverado Senior Living.

Silverado's senior communities have a certain number of community pets and seniors are encouraged to bring their own pet to live with them at Silverado Assisted Living or Hospice to provide pet therapy.

Silverado's Assisted Living communities specialize in caring for those with memory impairments, such as Alzheimer's, Parkinson's, Lewy-Body, or other related dementias.
