How Pets & Animals Benefit Seniors with Alzheimer’s Disease

Pets and other animals have the tendency to make people happy, brighten their day and distract from everyday troubles. No matter what type of animal, i.e., dog, cat, horse, bird or even fish, animals are known to have therapeutic properties. Seniors with Alzheimer’s disease or another form of dementia, in particular, can benefit in an increasing number of ways from a pet or other animal’s therapeutic traits. Physical health, emotional well-being and social involvement are among the many ways seniors with memory impairments benefit from pets and animal therapy.
