Joy For All
Comfort Therapy - Joy for All Companion Pets
Pet therapy is an alternative to over-medicating people with dementia; one that is being used successfully in many settings, including residential.
We know that pet therapy works. A study published in Psychogeriatrics concluded that, "Pet therapy is efficient in improving depressive symptoms and cognitive function in residents of long‐term care facilities," including residents with Alzheimer's. Most of the residents .in the study "reported an improvement of their perceived quality of life."
Unfortunately, your loved one isn't always able to provide the care required by a real live pet.
Joy For All Therapy Pets are the next best thing. Sensors in these 'animals' detect movement, sound, and touch, and actually interact with the people around them. Visit our store to view video of these pets in action.
