Doggies for Dementia: An Austin Photographer's Initiative to Keep Loneliness at Bay

Recommended Posts

Humanitarian photographer, author, international speaker, and nurse practitioner Carmen Davailus Buck's pet project 'Doggies for Dementia' is striving to address and mitigate the loneliness faced by people with Alzheimer's and related dementias. By combining the healing power of pets, friends, and family, she helps them connect through non-intrusive photo sessions, preserving these candid moments forever through photography.

According to an online survey of more than 20,000 adults in the US, nearly half of them report sometimes or always feeling alone (46%) or left out (47%). Loneliness increases the risk of depression, heart disease, stroke, immune system problems and may lead to an early death of people of all ages. Social isolation increases the risk of having Alzheimer's disease, which now strikes more than 5.7 million Americans -- a figure projected to triple by 2050.
