A Proponent of Pets for the Elderly

February 20, 1986

In this age of "throw-away" culture where the old or infirm are easily discarded and forgotten, I appreciated your Jan. 12 pet therapy story about those individuals and organizations who are brightening the lives of the elderly. Adopt-a-grandparent programs as well as animal-facilitated therapy are great ideas for increasing the self-esteem of shut-ins and institutionalized patients.

Three cheers for The Times in reporting some of the good things that make up the American character.
