Authored by CEO, Andria P. Harris, our blog is also a very important way of letting you know how we feel about what we do. For more dialogue on living with Dementia and Alzheimer's, be sure to follow us on Facebook and Twitter.

Every day I wake up, I realized that everything that I do for my clients actually give them a better chance to live happier.
I make it my business to find out what is that one thing that will bring that confused client smile and relaxation.
Could it be that he or she was a dog or cat lover or even horses?
How do I incorporate this factor in their social activities, since many seniors are no longer able to keep their pets, in their new communal environments?
Could it be that I make it my business to find animals that are available to visit, and also remind family members to visit as often as possible with family pets?
I recently watched confusion and fear totally fade from the pink cheeks of Mr. JT.
The moment he saw the - German Shepherd - thumped through the hallway his heart raced slower and a huge, huge smile lit up his confused face. He was accepting and grateful to see a familiar face, his buddy Lever, his German Shepherded.
This reminded me of the importance of bringing calm to Dementia Care.
