The Benefits of Pets on Health | Part 5

At Dog Days Pet Care, we understand the many challenges that come with caring for a loved one with Alzheimer’s disease or dementia. That’s why we’re here to help you and your loved one experience the many benefits that pets can provide.

  • Research at the University of California at Davis has concluded that Alzheimer’s patients suffer less stress and have fewer anxious outbursts if there is a dog or cat in the home. Pets can provide a source of positive, nonverbal communication. The playful interaction and gentle touch from a well-trained, docile animal can help soothe an Alzheimer’s patient and decrease aggressive behavior.
  • In addition to providing companionship and stress relief for Alzheimer’s patients, pets can also help ease the stress of caregivers. Cats or caged animals may be more suitable than dogs, which generally require more care and can add to the burden of someone who’s already looking after an Alzheimer’s patient.

At Dog Days Pet Care, we offer a variety of pet care services to help you and your loved one experience the many benefits that pets can provide. Our pet sitting services are a great way to ensure that your loved one has the companionship and stress relief they need, even when you’re not able to be there.

We also offer dog walking services, which can provide your loved one with the opportunity to get some exercise and fresh air, while also providing them with the companionship of a furry friend.

So if you’re caring for a loved one with Alzheimer’s disease or dementia, consider adopting a furry friend and hiring Dog Days Pet Care to help you and your loved one experience the many benefits that pets can provide. Contact us today to learn more about our services and how we can help you and your loved one live your best lives.
