JOY FOR ALL™ Companion Pets!
When you have someone that you love deeply and they get Alzheimers or Dementia, it’s sad to see them that way. They sometimes feel that there is no joy in going on, no quality of life. No matter what you try and do, it may seem that nothing works. Having taken care of my 96 year old mom the past couple years, I watch to see if there are certain things that bring more enjoyment than others.
For instance, she really likes looking at old picture books. She may not recognize everybody in them, but we tell her who they are. Sometimes she remembers and sometimes she doesn’t. I am always open to trying new things so when I heard of the Joy For All Companion Pets by Hasbro, I was willing to give them a try.
I received both the dog and the cat companion pets and it’s hard to say which one is cuter. Both are soft and cuddly and feel like a real dog or cat and make animal sounds. They say pets are good for you and can lower anxiety, blood pressure and make you calm. So I’m sure that the companion pets can do the same.
I gave the dog to my mom because she is more of a dog person. She looked surprised when the dog started barking, thanks to built in BarkBack™ technology.When you touch a certain part of the dog, you can feel his heart beat. With it’s built in sensors, if after a few minutes of not touching the dog, he will go to sleep. It’s so cute because he will turn towards her when she starts talking.
What’s great about the JOY FOR ALL™ Companion Pets is that while taking care of an elderly person, the last thing you want to do is have to take care of a dog or cat as well. The unique two-way interaction can help bring fun, joy, and companionship to you and your aging loved ones ages 5 to 105!
The feet and the tongue are hard rubber and there is also and on/off and mute switch under the bottom by the battery compartment. The cat has beautiful green eyes.
