Many caregivers are searching for natural health remedies these days. One treatment I’ve discovered that takes the edge off the anxiety of those living with dementia is a loveable pet.
When I was caring for my dad there were times where he became saturated with confusion.

Giving both his hands and his mind something to focus on, his panic seemed to evaporate as soon as the purring commenced.
