Enjoying Retirement with Beloved Pets at Winnwood

At Winnwood Retirement Community, we understand the profound bond between our residents and their beloved pets, and we celebrate the joy and companionship they bring to our vibrant community. In this blog post, we invite you to discover the unique joys of retirement living with your furry friends by your side, as we explore the many ways Winnwood fosters a pet-friendly environment.


First Things First… Where Do Retirement Communities Stand on Pets?

Many families we have spoken to are under the mistaken impression that once they leave their homes to move into a retirement community, they will not be able to take their pet with them. However, this is not the case. In today’s senior housing communities pets are the norm, not the exception! And like us, the operators of these communities are no longer blind to the fact that having a pet is not only a comfort to their residents, but it gives them a purpose and a responsibility. 


Winnwood: A Pet-Friendly Haven

Pets are more than a companion for older adults. They can be a lifeline. The presence of pets can promote physical activity, lower stress levels, and provide emotional support, contributing to improved overall well-being and quality of life in retirement. This being said, we would never want to break the animal-human bond, which is why our pet-friendly policies welcome all kinds of furry companions. As long as our residents can look after their pets themselves, they are more than welcome to bring them along.


Tail-Wagging Adventures

From leisurely strolls through our beautifully landscaped grounds to lively play sessions in our designated dog park, Winnwood offers ample opportunities for you and your furry friend to explore, exercise, and enjoy the great outdoors together.

In response to many of our residents having dogs, we created the WinnWOOF dog park—a safe and welcoming environment for residents to bond with their beloved pets while socializing with fellow animal lovers. Whether it's a leisurely stroll, a game of fetch, or simply basking in the sunshine, our dog park offers endless opportunities for residents to create lasting memories and embrace the joys of retirement living alongside their cherished canine companions.

A Shared Commitment to Well-Being

At Winnwood, we are dedicated to promoting the health, happiness, and well-being of all our residents, both two-legged and four-legged alike. Our pet-friendly policies and amenities reflect our commitment to creating a nurturing and inclusive environment where every resident can thrive, flourish, and embrace the joys of retirement living.
