Upcoming Social Activities
Pet Encounter Therapy (PET)
Thursday, October 21st @ 10 AM
Thursday, November 18th @ 10 AM
Animals often bring out the best in people. Studies document that holding and caressing an animal provides benefits such as relaxation, lower blood pressure, improved long- and short-term memory, and sensory stimuli. Alzheimer’s San Diego is excited to take part in the Pet Encounter Therapy (PET) program through Helen Woodward Animal Center designed for both people living with dementia and their care partners. Together you will interact with dogs, rabbits, birds and other adorable creatures in this outdoor activity. Space is limited, and RSVPs are required.
