It is estimated that more than half the global population share their lives with one or more pets and the health benefits have been widely reported. Pets provide comfort, companionship and a sense of self-worth.
Here at Leabrook Place residents’ pets are a big part of their life and for many, the reason they chose to live here so they could bring their furry (or feathered) friend.
“Mia and Kika (right) love living at Leabrook Place. They have settled in so well and they aren’t as shy as they were in our previous home. We had a cat enclosure installed around our balcony when we moved into Leabrook Place so that Mia and Kika can spend time outside whenever they want to. Animals are therapeutic, they give you a reason to get going in the mornings. I haven’t felt so contented in a long time. The community here is lovely. We didn’t have anyone to talk to where we used to live. We all love it here.”
- Merle & John, Leabrook Place residents
