Dementia Patients Help Care for Orphaned Kittens – The Good News [VIDEO]
The program, called "Bottle Babies," has brought a sense of pride and joy to the residents of the memory ward.
Catalina Valley Memory Care in Arizona recently teamed up with the Pima Animal Care Center to create the program, where patients in the center help care for orphaned kittens.
Last year, the PACC took in over 2,100 kittens that required regular bottle feeding. So, the patients at the memory care center nurture, play and cuddle with the kittens until they can be placed in a home. Even though most of these seniors can't care for themselves, their desire to help is still there, and they're able to receive some joy from taking care of these kittens.
