Robocats for Dementia Sufferers

These are realistic looking robotic cats that respond when being handled by people . We are providing some for local care homes.

The photo is of Derek who was the first recipient of a Lamplighters’ robocat. He and another dementia sufferer are singing to the cat at the Dementia Café in Heaton Moor. His wife, Lyn, who cares for Derek at home, says it helps to calm him when he gets anxious or agitated. We already have donations from members of Lamplighters to fund three more robocats but we’d like to raise another £300 for Lamplighter funds to cover the purchase of another three. 
Please donate using the link at the bottom of this page so that Lamplighters can help more people (and their carers) who suffer from this terrible condition. 

The video below shows a Robocat in action.
