The Dementia Dog Project builds services for people with dementia that brings dogs back into their lives or supports them to continue their relationship with dogs.
It aims to prove that dogs can help people with dementia maintain their waking, sleeping and eating routine, remind them to take medication, improve confidence, keep them active and engaged with their local community, as well as providing a constant companion who will reassure when facing new and unfamiliar situations.
Come along to meet Jim Baird from Dementia dog project, and more importantly, meet the dogs!!
Jim will also be talking about other projects he is involved with- Dog day care and Therapet.
You are welcome to bring along the person you care for with dementia.
