The Face of Alzheimer's

Pets help reduce the anxiety, agitation, irritability, depression, and loneliness experienced by people with Alzheimer’s disease.

Alzheimer’s patients may experience heightened agitation as a result of confusion, frustration, fatigue, environmental changes, or medication interactions. Patients’ reactions to these stimuli can all be made more severe by the structural damage Alzheimer’s inflicts on the brain.

Spending time with animals can help reduce these symptoms and provide comfort to the patient. Taking care of a pet can help a person with Alzheimer’s feel calmer and more relaxed than they would on their own or with only human interaction.

Cure Alzheimer’s Fund looks forward to the day when no one will have to suffer the fear and anxiety caused by Alzheimer’s. With your help, we can continue to find and fund the research which will lead to a cure.
