What happens to the dog if the person with dementia dies?

During this difficult time, we would discuss options with the carer to explore how they can best be supported, with ultimate decisions also taking into consideration the dog’s welfare needs too. The carer may like to keep the dog and have the opportunity, in time, to become involved in our Community Dog program where the dog can continue to provide benefits for people living with dementia e.g. through visiting local care homes and daycare activities with their dog.
