Our Admiral Nursing Service recently received a kind donation of Companion Pets! These are designed for people living with dementia. The cat is proven to reduce feelings of depression, social isolation as well as increasing cognitive activity, capability and a sense of purpose.
They are designed to bring comfort, love and companionship for those with Alzheimer’s or other dementias.
The team have already given out 3 cats to families we are working with and have received amazing feedback. The cat has really made a difference in reducing anxiety and helping to calm their loved one.
We'd like to thank Bill Mummery from The Rotary Club of Onchan, Barry Smith and Lindy Lewis from Inner Wheel Club of Rushen and Western Mann for helping us make this happen.
