service dog for mom
Organized by: Roi Chase
My mom is in need of a specially trained service dog. For this training it will cost about $5,ooo. It would take up several years to save up ourselves. I worry about her while at work. She has back problems and can't bend down to pick things up, or she losses her balance and falls. She is also hard of hearing, and hearing aides don't work well for her. The dog we are looking for will be trained to alert her to noises such as the phone, door, and my youngest crying. It would also be trained to bring her the phone, or get myself or oldest child in the event of a fall. Also it would pick up dropped items for her, and maybe as her health diminishes pull her in a wheelchair. She does live with me and helps watch my two children while I work, my oldest is thirteen, and the baby is two. As we can we are making our home more and more accessible for her, but having a service dog will greatly improve her independence as she ages. Thank you for any help!
