About Pet Therapy
A hand reaches out, a wagging tail approaches, and an elderly face breaks into a smile. It's a scene that's increasingly common in the Helena Valley, thanks to volunteers from the Helena Chapter of Intermountain Therapy Animals. Activity directors and health care professionals report that visiting pets reach nursing home residents, hospital patients, retirement home residents and adult day care participants in ways that other therapeutic activities can't.
The contact may be brief, but it brightens the entire day or week, especially for those who have had pets in the past. In some cases, an animal's visit is transforming. Shy, withdrawn, or depressed people find themselves in animated conversation, angry people relax, and those with memory lapses share detailed recollections of pets they lived with years before. Visiting pets have reached autistic children, stroke victims, Alzheimer's patients, and other "unreachables." Even when nothing dramatic happens, pet visits are important changes of pace for facility residents, bringing excitement, affection, comfort, physical contact and joy.
In addition, to providing companionship (called Animal Assisted Activity), visiting pets sometimes participate in a facility's therapy program. In Animal Assisted Therapy, a dog might stand while a patient brushes him order to exercise specific arm muscles, or a cat might visit a depressed patient to encourage conversation, or someone in speech therapy might give commands to a dog that does tricks or retrieves objects. Anyone who loves animals is likely to work harder and feel more motivated when one is part of the therapy team.
Dr. Meganne Masko joins me to discuss the first Music Therapy Persectives of 2015. Listen live at 2 pm Central on Thursday, June 18, or the archived podcast following the live broadcast. Want to prepare for this journal club meeting? Read the abstracts of each article before listening!
This week we will be talking about the elderly and special care and the benefits of that service.
We will also be talking about hospice care and the toll that that takes on the loved ones of the recipients.
Have you ever had a loved one that received special care? Do you know what that is? Do you know what the financial obligations of Special Care are? Is it available to everyone?
What about hospice care? What are the differences between Special Care and Hospice Care?
Have you ever had a loved one that received Hospice Care? What are some of the factors that determine whether a person should choose hospice Care or or not?
What is the emotional toll that is taken on the family of the recipient? Is Hospice Care always the end of the road for the recipients? Does anyone ever come back from receiving Hospice Care or is it usually time to just start making funeral arrangements?
This featured guest on this show will be Darby Didah McIntyre-Guy? who has worked in the Special Care industry for a little under 2 decades and has a wealth of knowledge on the topic from a manager's standpoint as well as working in the field.
