The Last Stop: Senior Living with Pets

Margery's friend with his dogHalloween is a popular time for pets at my senior residence. Many of the dog parents and one cat parent parade their costumed children in our large community room and residents vote for the best costumes. Sometimes the pets get a little impatient with the event, but their proud owners are determined to march them through the admiring crowd. Pets are welcome residents here. No, I don’t have a pet but I love knowing the pets of my friends.

Learn more about my observations of the role that pets play in my friends’ lives in my latest post Senior Living with Pets.

This post was written by Margery Fridstein, an author and retired psychotherapist who lives in a CCRC outside of Denver, CO. She is chronicling her experience in the monthly series, “The Last Stop With Margery Fridstein.”
