Some Things Fishy: brings easy pet therapy to long term care facilities.
The Rolling Sea
Some Things Fishy invented the rolling aquarium for bed-bound residents. The lighted background helps residents with vision impairments see the fish. It's the only aquarium that won't spill when moved, even on ramps or over bumps. It can easily be rolled anywhere in your facility, as easy to move as a resident in a wheelchair.
Benefits proven by research
Some Things Fishy donated aquariums for research at Purdue University. Alzheimer's residents seated in front of the Rolling Sea during meals stayed at the table longer, ate 20% more food, and gained weight. The aquariums captured the attention of residents who typically dozed off and calmed agitated residents. Each facility saw cost savings of $400 per month since use of nutritional supplements decreased 25%. (Results were published in a peer-reviewed journal.) Mariner Healthcare recently replicated these results in their own facilities. Further benefits include less skin breakdown leading to fewer acquired in-house pressure sores, decreased anxiety, less wandering, pacing, and yelling. The aquariums entertained and calmed bored and anxious residents, helped them fall asleep at night, and decreased the use of sedative medications. Staff morale increased. This research has been featured in numerous news articles, including Contemporary Long Term Care, Provider, Assisted Living Success, The Los Angeles Times, and American Family Physician.
