At Fellowship Square Tucson, we’re more than just “pet friendly.” We LOVE pets! Move into Fellowship Square Tucson, an assisted living and independent living community, and enjoy playing with your pet in one of our Pet Parks! Sitting on 22 acres there are plenty of other fellow friends to meet during a stroll with your four legged friend!
We believe that our pets love us unconditionally and are essential to our overall health and happiness especially for seniors. After some research and observations of our Elders and their dogs (cats to be a separate article), there are three things you can learn from your dogs that will make you healthier and happier!
Take Care of Yourself
Nap, get exercise, get regular checkups from your doctor and make time for basic care without guilt! Never stop meeting new friends like the ones we meet at the Pet Parks! Be the best you can be and we will have many more great days together!
Have a Great Attitude
It does not matter what happened in my day I will always wag my tail when I see you come through the door. When you pet me and talk to me in your upbeat voice, I will jump up and give you wet kisses! No matter what has transpired during the day, we greet each other and smile.
Set Aside Time for the Simple Things
Sit by my side and I’ll watch all the shows you want to watch, even the ones without animals! Sipping a cup of coffee on the patio in the morning and watching the sunrise is one of my favorite times! It does not matter that I don’t like coffee. I won’t try to drink yours, because it reminds you that I am a good dog.
Fellowship Square understands how important it is for you to find new things to do with your dog and that it takes some imagination and extra time! Dogs can become bored easily and when they do, they tend to misbehave.
To keep your dog out trouble we have provided a list of things to do with your dog!
- Throw a Birthday Bash for your dog!
- Go Shopping Together in Pet Friendly Store
- Dress up for Halloween and go Trick or Treating
- Treat your dog to a Spa Day!
- Visit a Dog Park
- Take your dog for a ride with the windows down
- Go on a Walk in your neighborhood
- Play in the sprinklers
- Make bath time fun with squeaky toys
- Take an overnight camping trip
Even if you only have the time to set aside a few of these tips and activities , the greatest part for seniors is the overwhelming gratitude they will receive from their fellow friend.
Since becoming a resident four years ago, Fellowship Square has met my physical, mental, social, and spiritual needs beautifully. I enjoy participating in supervised fitness activities, discussion groups and long-distance fieldtrips sponsored by Fellowship Square.
Bus transportation is available for grocery shopping, trips to banks and appointments. Housekeeping support is provided twice a month. The prompt responses to small maintenance issues are much appreciated by residents. We’re grateful that security personnel are available 24 hours daily. Excellent dining services meet our diverse dietary needs. Personal assistance is also available to those who require additional resident services.
The outdoor environment at Fellowship Square is especially appealing to me because of the plentiful trees, shrub, flowers, birds, pools, fountains and shaded ramadas. So, why not make plans, NOW, to broaden your horizons, develop new friendships, and share your experiences and interests with others.
