Dementia & Caring For Pets –

Is It A Good Fit?

This is a fascinating conversation with those diagnosed with dementia and their thoughts about the effects of pets.  They look at all sides of pet ownership and responsibility.  I think you may be surprised at some of the honest and heartfelt comments every family should seriously think about before getting a pet.
