The Positive Effects of Pets on Alzheimer’s and Dementia Sufferers
Multiple studies have proven that pets – in particular cats and dogs – provide a joyful, calming, mood-boosting lift to those suffering from Dementia-related illnesses such as Alzheimer’s disease. It is a cruel reality, however, that those with a psychological disorder such as Alzheimer’s will reach a point where they are no longer able to care for their own pet, and certainly wouldn’t be allowed to become a new pet owner. The responsibility of feeding, walking, grooming and being responsible for the behaviour of a pet is too much for many older adults, no matter how much love they have to give a deserving animal.
Precious Petzzz have created a solution to this dilemma with their beautifully cuddly, calm, and cute battery-powered pets, with lifelike fur and a relaxing rise and fall as they breathe peacefully on their owner’s lap. Each pet is perfectly weighted to help ground the person they are sleeping on. Also known as Earthing; grounding is the technique of adding weight or pressure to the body to increase feelings of security and safety and lower the production of cortisol – the hormone produced when we are faced with a ‘fight or flight’ situation.
Can a ‘Robot Pet’ Really Help with Alzheimer’s Disease?
Pet therapy is commonly undertaken to help people cope with a health problem or mental disorder, and now more and more studies are being undertaken to prove the fantastic effects of simulation pets on those with Alzheimer’s disease. Whilst these studies are few, Senior Director at the Alzheimer’s Society, Monica Moreno says “…there is certainly anecdotal evidence to suggest that this kind of interaction may help some people living with moderate to severe Alzheimer’s disease or other dementias.”.
With all the benefits and none of the drawbacks of a real pet, Precious Petzzz cuddly companions are perfect, not only for those suffering dementia or Alzheimer's, but also anyone with a psychological disorder that increases the likelihood of agitation, stress and anxiety, or unexpected mood swings. They can even be given as a cute gift to young children purely for enjoyment purposes. They will love petting and cuddling their new furry friend and it should - hopefully - stop the constant begging for a cat or dog of their own!
All beautiful breeds of Precious Petzzz come in an artistically designed carry case with an adoption certificate and their very own snuggly bed for times when the lap of their beloved owner isn't available. Perfectly sized to fit comfortably in the lap, Precious Petzzz are not true to size of real-life animals so they won’t encroach on space or weigh down their new owner!
