Many disabled people would like to lead an independent life without the assistance of a caregiver or family member. An assistance dog can bring medication, a drink to take the medication, open and close doors, call 911, help a disabled person dress and undress, assist with walking with a specialized harness, assist with transfer from one chair to another, retrieve an object from across the room, and more. All of this allows the disabled person to live a more independent life. For more information visit the website of the International Association of Assistance Dog Partners. They have a wonderful list of the tasks that can help a disabled person.
