Aquariums for Dementia

Some people suffering with Alzheimer’s or dementia are lucky enough to have the company of a big floppy dog, a bird or even a cat. For many who are allergic this is not a viable option and therefore a fish aquarium is the best alternative. Pets bring great benefits to all of us—companionship, unconditional love, and fun. 

The very presence of an aquarium can help reduce the effects of dementia—anxiety, agitation, irritability, depression, and loneliness. Scientific tests have shown that by having an aquarium; patients in care homes have had reduced effects of their dementia, and when placed in or near the canteen; residents will eat more than they usually do.

We believe that the reasons behind these results is that an aquarium gives the residents something to concentrate on for a longer period of time, and in the canteen as they are watching the fish they will remain in the area for longer and eat more food; which can only be a good thing for those who struggle to eat sufficiently.

To the left you can see residents of Blackburn Lodge Residential Home enjoying an aquascaped aquarium that we supplied, designed, installed and maintain free of charge for the residents.

Aquariums for Autism and Disabilities

The original plan was to make the loyalty scheme to help with dementia, however since opening the shop and watching children it became apparent aquatics can help those with Autism concentrate better and aid in the recovery of sick children. We have now done 2 things, the first thing was to get together with Bemix, a charity that works at setting up apprenticeships for your people with autism to help them get into work, we now have Declan as part of our team who currently works with us 2 days a week and is doing an amazing job. The second thing we did was to offer a second tank free of charge to Demelza House Hospice for Children, due to COVID there are not many children in the hospice but once the pandemic calms down the children will be able to enjoy this aquascape and the fish.

A Loyalty Scheme that helps the local community

For every £100 you spend in store (collect stamps on your card) we will give you the choice to either have £2.50 off your next purchase; or if you donate it to our Aquariums for Dementia Fund we will double the value and deposit £5.00. The money raised in the fund will go towards the purchase of an aquarium, decor and fish which will be installed into local residential homes. We hope that you will support us with this project and raise enough money so that once it has been installed we can send a maintenance team in to keep it clean and keep the fish fed. If you would like to donate directly to the fund please email hello@stonesaquatics.co.uk for donation details. If you know of a residential home that would benefit from this scheme please let us know so that we can add them to our list of prospects.
