Uno the Dementia Dog

A very successful workshop event was held by our School on the 28th May 2019 at our Lanarkshire Campus which looked at
Dementia & Multi-Species Caring: Current Practice & Future Possibilities’

Fifty-eight people attended the workshop from a wide variety of backgrounds – including, academic research, health & social care practice, funding, policy-making, animal welfare and lived expertise. 
The focus of the day was on the the use of animal assisted therapies in dementia care.

The report from the day is now available to read on the British Society of Gerontology’s Blog which is called Ageing Issues. You can read their Blog “Dementia & Multi-Species Caring: Current Practice & Future Possibilities” at
