Will my pet be allowed to move with me?

Pets can be fantastic companions for people in their senior years. Some retirement villages and homes (but not all) will accommodate both you and your pets.

Policies concerning pets will vary across retirement home operators, but the type of pet, its size, and its temperament are likely to be considered.  Villages that have good physical distances between homes are more likely to accept pets than those with housing that is very close to neighbours.
