You Bring Your Pets with You? No Problem


You guess it right. This reminder accounts for one of the most common and ubiquitous signs we see in many establishments we go to, probably second only to “NO SMOKING.”

Indeed, facilities that allow us to bring in our favorite companions are a rarity. If ever they do, they would highlight and advertise it.

Our nursing home Cedargate Healthcare is one of those rare institutions where individual pets are not only allowed but welcome. We don’t highlight nor advertise it. We just include it in our excellent list of services (more on this as we go along). That speaks volume of our initiative to give our clients a real comfortable and worry-free life here in our facility.

We know how important and valuable your pets to you are. When every person you know in this world abandons you, expect your loyal friend, companion, and protector to remain by your side come hell or high water.

Having Pets Is Therapeutic

Maintaining a pet per se may or may not be the therapy itself. But what is therapeutic about the exercise is the feeling that you get from having a pet with you around. You feel happy, relieved, appreciated, and loved — among many other similar adjectives — whenever you spend time with a furry or feathery companion.

This exhilarating feeling is responsible for the sick to get healed or the injured to recover much more speedily.

It is in this context that our Cedargate Assisted Living Facility in Kanell Blvd. Poplar Bluff MO includes welcoming of pets in our impressive list of services. It falls under the category of Additional Services/Programs. Other conveniences here include:

  • Veterans assistance.
  • Respite care; short and long term stays.
  • Physician services.
  • Coordination of rehabilitation services.
  • Podiatry services.
  • Home health services.

Having Pets plus Excellent Assisted Living Services Equals Comfortable Living

If allowing your pets to be with you in our facility already works wonders for your overall disposition, how much more if we combine it with the best assisted living services as well as best nursing care there are in this part of Missouri? The results would be short of miraculous.
