With no training and drawing no salary, Nala reports to work each morning to comfort residents who live with Alzheimer’s at a Minnesota nursing home. That’s because four-legged Nala is a five-year-old teacup poodle.
Those who know, say she spends time with people with Alzheimer’s and even those at the end of their life’s journey.
Nala joins Oscar, a feline physician’s assistant in Making Rounds with Oscar by Dr. David Dosa, who comforts with equally inspired compassion.
What a JOY Nala brings to loved ones living their last days, months, and even years. In return, every day, she receives lotsa’ lovin’ on an almost unlimited supply of laps.
