Therapy animals have been shown time and again to help patients. From severe anxiety to PTSD, these animals can provide a loving platform in order to build a person’s mental health around. These unique rehabilitation tools have even helped those recovering from physical injuries.
The not-for-profit organization, Our Better World, connects patients and animals together and has achieved some remarkable results. The story in this video follows one patient with a terminal illness. You can see, even in the face of such a terrible diagnosis, that the dog has brought the patient a lot of joy.
These animals have a special ability to break through the walls a person has constructed and connect with them. They offer a connection to patients that otherwise might never have been made. Even if the results are just a placebo, they are still getting better outcomes than if they did nothing at all.
Check out this fascinating organization in the video we posted below. Groups like these are needed all over the world, and it is always wonderful to see clips of their services, like this video. Enjoy and remember groups like this should you ever know someone who could benefit.
