Romans News – Meet our New Pets!

Please meet Sally (kitten) and Squiggle (puppy), our reality pets at Romans. These virtual animals are used predominantly with our residents who live with dementia, but are loved by everyone. Joan said: “They are so real and you sit them on your lap and stroke them, just like my cat, very calming.” Olive said: “It is like having a real animal and they breathe as well, so you can see their chests go up and down.”  Very much loved and in constant use, these pets are a great idea, especially as they cost nothing to keep and there are no vets bills!
