Old man's best friend: Animal-assisted intervention for older people with dementia
Dementia results in the loss of memory, intellect, rationality and social skills and is often accompanied by behavioural and psychological symptoms such as agitation, aggression, wandering and noisiness. Previous research has demonstrated that Animal-Assisted Interventions have some promise in increasing social behaviour and reducing the behavioural and psychological symptoms in people with dementia. The current program of research further investigated Animal-Assisted Interventions for people with dementia.
