  • Service Dogs and ALS?

    Posted by Dagmar on April 16, 2019 at 12:27 pm

    I recently read a biography written by a woman who has lived with ALS for nearly 15 years. She wrote that during her first three years she had a service dog. Her service dog picked up dropped items, opened doors and even stood still and was a solid “brace” the woman could use to help pull herself up off the floor after falling.

    But I wonder, once a pALS’ symptoms progress even more – – is the service dog still helpful – – or will it become a burden for the caregiver?

    Do you have a service dog or plan to acquire one? What have been your experiences?
