"I'll take care of you, and you'll take care of me"

This video is posted on youtube by Lisa Abeyta. The man in the video is her dad, and has Alzheimer's disease. According to Lisa, he has lost almost all of his speech. But he managed speech which made sense when he is with the dog.

It is known that dogs can be beneficial to people with dementia. The presence of dogs can lower the blood pressure and alleviate depression. In people with Alzheimer’s the dog's presence lowers anxiety, and increases social awareness.

It may not be known what causes the return Lisa’s dad's speech ability when with the dog. This video is serene, because what is thought to be lost resurfaced, and to add, the dog in the video is so composed and assuring around the elderly man.

 

Nevertheless, we heed the advice that ends the video.
