If this evocative title brings to mind the title of a comic book aimed at youth, the partnership of these two groups has a different purpose ...
A great initiative to make the active clubs Jacques Delmas (4A) and Georges Adassovsky (Educaninou). The association nouvelloise dog training, Educaninou, has expanded its operations.
In addition to his classes on Saturday and Sunday morning, to optimize relations handlers and its partnership with the Spa, it is now open to the outside.
Indeed, the 4A charity for Alzheimer's caregivers, wished to propose an animation the suffering in her care, in which physical contact with a dog would be possible.
It is recognized that the proximity of an animal is a great benefit because it provokes emotions or memories which for this disease, is particularly recommended.
Thus, for the second time, an educator Educaninou, Mireille Broker Dalton with his dog, went to the Paul Monier to meet with patients. His visits will be in the future on a regular basis on Tuesday or Thursday.
These people, the vast majority have had dogs in their previous life and so distant memories they are trying to express stroking the animal. This time of awakening and contacts beneficial to the patient, performed with different dogs chosen for their sociability, their calm and their education. The association canine nouvelloise is delighted to participate in a manner entirely voluntary, the best being of people with Alzheimer's disease and thus contribute to a charity.
It will be followed in the spring, a second action, this time with school children.
