Efficacité de la thérapie assistée par l’animal sur les symptômes psychologiques et comportementaux de la démence

Abstract : Today, the use of animal mediation as a form of treatment in nursing homes has become more and more common. Our study assesses and measures, largely through the use of the Neuropsychiatric Inventory for Nursing Home (NPI-NH), how the presence of a dog in Alzheimer’s patient psychotherapy affects psycho-behavioral disorder (BPSD) levels in French men and women with a mean age of 85 years living in an institution. Our study focuses on well-being and on building positive emotion in the elderly with dementia, particularly through regaining self-esteem, stimulation, remobilization and maintenance of preserved cognitive abilities. This therapeutic basis is made possible through exposure to a dog with the goal of decreasing BPSD.
