My Friend who has severe epilepsy ( among other things like severe asthma) had a dog which keeps her company and also 'helps' when she has fits ( she does have call care alarm too!) .
Doggy is 11 yrs old and had arthritis and another problem that needs pred!
She is looking into getting a dog that can be a companion / assistance dog to help her as she is on her own ( hubby died last year and doggy has been a huge help to her)
Does anyone know of a national organisation which trains and places assistance dogs for disabled people ( Bit Like guide dogs for the blind).
I have tried one web site but e-mail bounced and others didn't seem to be UK based.
