Research has proven that people with dementia would do well with pets. Pets are a source of unconditional love, care and companionship. Studies have proven that demented patients who kept puppies and kittens were less anxious, agitated or depressed. They showed signs of emotional stability and were less likely to wander around since they were more grounded staying with the pets.
However traditional pets are a source of headache since you have to find about the following:
- Food for the pet
- Kernel where the pet stays
- Taking away litter
- Veterinary costs
- Fur and dirt all over the house
- Pet could get agitated and end up hurting the resident
- Death of the pet could cause untold suffering to the resident and end up getting more stressed than before.
It is for this reason that Joy for all has come up with robotic pets for dementia patients. Here we have a look at two; a kitten and a pup.
