The American Senior Communities talks about the benefits of therapy animals for seniors. "Seniors suffer from depression usually as a result of loneliness or isolation, either because friends and family members cannot visit on a regular basis, or they aren’t as active as they previously were. Perhaps a loving spouse has passed away. Contact with therapy animals can bring some withdrawn seniors out of their shells, making them happier and more communicative.
Studies show that seniors who are active and always around others, or who own a pet decline in health far less rapidly than isolated or depressed seniors." - source.
