Puppy Therapy

Alzheimers in Poway

Having fun with our 9 month old puppies

Our Poway residents are really enjoying watching our puppies grow. The pups are now 9 weeks old and growing fast. Nurturing the two young dogs has really been an activity of love for our Alzheimer’s and Dementia patients. From the moment the puppies come in the door you can see the change in our residents demeanor. We have to almost pry them away from our seniors with Memory Impairments when it is time for them to go back home. Providing care and love for the pups really give our seniors a sense of purpose. One of our residents said “I love these pups, they need more help than I do, and that makes me feel useful” The smiles and love the puppies and residents share is truly priceless!!
