Service Dogs for People with Parkinson's
Service dogs can be trained to help people with Parkinson’s disease with a variety of tasks such as getting dressed, opening doors, or alleviating freezing. Studies show that service dogs can also encourage regular exercise and reduce loneliness. Kari Cleland, who has been training dogs for over 40 years, will be answering all your questions about service dogs.
This event will be recorded for viewing at a later date and available on the www.exerciseforbrainchange.org website.
