Therapy dogs for Alzheimer’s patients

This week on Ireland AM, we visited a day care centre run by The Alzheimer Society to film the first-ever visit by Irish Therapy Dogs.

The short video shows the remarkable impact that dogs can have on people who are based in a community environment like a day care centre.

Thanks for this initiative are due to Allianz, the insurance company (who, appropriately, have pet insurance in their portfolio), who are the current corporate partner to The Alzheimer Society.
