Pet Therapy and Alzheimer's

 Real dogs and cats can be a wonderful therapeutic experience for a person in early stages of Alzheimer's disease.  As human beings, we all LOVE our pets! 

Unfortunately, as Alzheimer's disease progresses, our loved ones aren't able to care for live pets anymore and many long term care facilities don't allow live pets.  Real pets, at this point, can cause too much activity and disruption, possibly causing the person to become agitated and frustrated.

A Memorable Pet is a great solution to many of these issues!
