Assistance dogs are a lifesaver to many Australians suffering with various disabilities. Recently, trails placing assistance dogs within the home of dementia patients have taken place, reflecting a number of positive outcomes. Assistance dogs are an excellent solution to relieving the day to day stresses that come with the dementia disease. Organisations such as Dogs 4 Dementia, and Assistance Dogs Australia, are teaming up to provide more patients who are suffering with the disease with the emotional and physical support of a 4-legged companion.
