...Pet Therapy................
>>>>>>>>>.................................
The Trinity Foundation is pleased to be sponsoring another research project
aimed at improving the quality of life of nursing home residents.
The Pet Therapy research initiative will focus primarily on
residents with depression and those suffering from
Alzheimer's disease and other forms of dementia.
..............................
In partnership with the Mental Health Association of Greater Cincinnati and the
Meadowbrook Care Center, a 156 bed nursing facility equipped with an
Alzheimer's unit, the Foundation will research the effects of pet visits.
This exciting new study is scheduled to begin in December.
......
The project will involve weekly visits from Mental Health Association
volunteers accompanied by pets specially trained and screened for
social interaction. Participants will be evaluated for any
improvement in cognitive function or symtoms of depression.
The research project is free of charge to the participants
and wholly underwritten by the Trinity Foundation.
.....
Research results will be published and if the positive results anticipated
are attained the Foundation will provide abstracts and program
guides to interested long term care organizations.
