Alzheimer's Guide Dogs

What an amazing Video on Alzheimer's Guide Dogs. Who would have thought.

My German Shepherd, Emma, wouldn't get an A but going into my own old(er) age, I'll re-think working only for her to be happy and safe instead of, in addition, letting her - or a future dog - work for me.

It never occurred to me to get Abe a guide dog during his wandering period. How wonderful that the concept is out there now and can be integrated into our caregiving consciousnesses. The video is worth the 10 min watch.

I love this concept! Mom doesn't wander but if she did one of these dogs would really be helpful. Thanks for posting this.
