I am delighted to be a guest presenter as part of the 20-week Dementia Caregivers’ Support Group held at Cooley Dickinson Hospital. My topic is The Human-Canine Connection and I will be presenting on Tuesday, April 24, from 4 to 5 pm.
As science continues to unlock the mysteries of this powerful connection, the human-canine bond is becoming better understood and accepted medically as an alternative form of treatment. I will offer anecdotal stories of cases in which James and I have been involved. James, of course, does all the work. I am simply there as an observer… forever in awe of my dog’s ability to touch those unable to be touched by humans. James will be right at my side as I relate his stories.
This program is open to the public. All interested in learning more about the power of the human-canine connection are welcome to attend. Come and meet James and learn about the meaningful work carried out by therapy dogs. There will be a Questions & Answers session after my talk.
