Life-saving pets: Dogs that calm Alzheimer's patients | Benefits of owning a dog | Scoop.it

Pets are therapeutic for those with Alzheimer's and dementia, experts say.

 

According to the Fisher Center for Alzheimer's Research Foundation, therapy dogs can provide important comfort, companionship, and a sense of connection for those isolated by Alzheimer's and dementia.
