[Clinical Session Presentation] The purpose of this descriptive study was to examine the relationship between loneliness and health, as well as examine the effect of pet attachment support which theoretically mediates this relationship in a sample of 159 community-residing older female adults. The stress, coping, and adaptation theory posited by Lazarus and Folkman (1984) was the overall conceptual framework for this study. The findings from this study support that pet attachment support has a mediating effect on the relationship between loneliness and health in this sample of female adults. Since attachment relationships can be found in many different forms, such as a pet, community health professionals have an obligation to assess these relationships and utilize them to enhance women?s health.
