Interesting seeing how many nurses/caregivers are here. I always thought Chis were popular amongst that "career". I know several people personally who are both Chi people and nurses. As for myself...I am a RCA/CRMA in a dementia unit at an assisted living facility. Basically I work with people in the beginning/middle/and some end stages of Alzheimers (or other dementias)...we keep them as long as they are amulatory & when they are not they go to the nursing home next door. I have been there for 14 years (since I was 19) & absolutely love it.

....

I have heard that Chi's can be excellent therapy dogs for nursing homes and rehabs. My mother was in a nursing home for the last few years of her life. I do remember there was a person who regularly visited the home with a well trained Sheltie, and the residents regularly enjoyed its presence.
