If you can provide a pet do so or borrow a friends dog for a visit . Nothing like the smile you get seeing them petting & loving on a dog. I found an older rescue dog for my Dad @ 93 years old and it was love at first sight for both of them. Best part is I found out the rescued dog's older owner had passed away &y Dad filled the spot!! Older dogs are tough to find homes for but perfect matches for older parents!
