Most people have experienced the mesmerizing effect of watching fish swim back and forth in a home aquarium. There is something satisfying about watching colorful fish as they glide through the water, but did you know there are health benefits associated with fish gazing? Watching fish swim can have a calming effect and can therefore reduce stress, lower blood pressure, and even bring help to those with Alztheimer’s disease, according to homehelpershomecare.com. These benefits can generate positive feelings and longer lives.

Good Shepherd’s Cove building recently added a 60-gallon tank for its residents to enjoy. The hope is that residents will soon discover the comfort of watching these shiny creatures as they swim together in relaxing unison. Happy viewing!
