Our mother has dementia and can’t have her much loved dog in the care home. She loves the puppy, we’re so pleased that it provides some comfort.
My husband is in care with Alzheimers and Parkinson. He loves with talk and touch “ Winston” as I named him. Although he doesn’t remember his name. He so enjoys engaging with him. It makes our visit a pleasant one having fun with Winston. Haven’t had the heart to tell him our dog died six months ago. Winston has helped healed the gap. I know longer need to make excuses about having to go and feed our dog which makes it easier to leave him. So pleased to have found Winston for my husband.
My 90 year old mother sort of knows it's not actually a real dog, but nevertheless enjoys talking to it and getting a response. The dog barks when she chats with it, wags its tail and most of all is soft and pleasant to stroke when on her lap. It is now her constant companion, sits with her, sleeps with her - she doesn't want to leave it. To be honest, I've been amazed at how much she loves it. It definitely is cheering - a great idea. I did buy a cat too, have not yet introduced that as caring for the dog has been so all-consuming for my mother, but may do that later on.
Bought this for my elderly mother who has Alzheimers and recently lost her pet dog of 15yrs. She has been crying for him every day for months because in her mind he went only days ago. We named her new companion Goldie and he has really made a difference to mums mood. She knows he is a robot but still enjoys having him in her lap and chatting to him. He makes us both laugh, I have fallen for him too and giving him a daily cuddle makes me feel good. It must release some sort of endorphins. Mum particularly likes the way he opens and closes his eyes.
Our 90 year old mother, who lost her husband 5 years ago, who always had pets in their lives.
She is now in full care with dementia, which is about an hour and a half away from all her family.
We decided to get her a puppy and cat.
She absolutely loves them and they have changed her restricted life for the positive.
This is such a relief for the family and would fully recommend these awesome companion pets.
Thanks for sharing your beautiful story. They really are amazing products and we are so pleased they are having a positive impact on her life!
