The Purr-Low™ as an aid in Pet Therapy
Pet companionship or therapy yields a multitude of benefits for people coping with stress and various health problems. However, not everyone has the capacity to own a pet or bring a pet to some areas. In this regard, we hope that The Purr-Low™ can take place as a source of your comfort.
What is Pet Therapy?
Pet therapy involves the use of dogs, cats and other animals to help people cope with health problems, and recover from diseases and disorders.
For people living with dementia, this therapy involves guided interactions between the individual, a trained animal, and the animal’s handler. Some of the therapeutic experiences can include petting, brushing, walking, and caring for the animal.
Many studies have found a link between pet therapy and an overall improved emotional well-being and positive outcome in people with behavioural issues, medical conditions, and autism. This therapy can be either individual or in a group setting and is sometimes also led by a qualified therapist.
How can The Purr-Low™ help with Pet Therapy?
In some circumstances, it may not be appropriate to have animals in some areas or the visits to Pet Therapy animals facility may only be scheduled on a monthly basis. The Purr-Low™ can help take place for some of the comfort a real animal provides at any time as your own pseudo-purr pet making the reach for comfort and companionship easily achieved
For people living with dementia, loneliness, depression, anxiety, and confusion are common. The Purr-Low™ can help in some small way to reduce these symptoms and remove some of the anger, helplessness, and frustration experienced by those afflicted as their condition progresses.
How to Get Started with Pet Therapy
Most of the studies involving pet therapy were conducted in care facilities. However, many of the same benefits can be found with a pet at home. If you have a family member with dementia living at home, you may want to consider getting The Purr-Low™ for your family member to start with before adopting an animal into your/their home.
Please ask your care manager, doctor or facility care area if The Purr-Low™ would be beneficial before choosing to buy.
