Dogs assisting Alzheimer’s and Dementia Patients

I  heard about the good results achieved when pets visit nursing homes but I was glad to read this article

about dogs being trained to assist Alzheimer and dementia patients.  This was first piloted in Israel and now in Scotland.  Dogs have a 6 foot long leash and GPS navigation device in their collar.  The main task for the dog is to bring his charge home when the command Home is given.
