DNI breaks new ground with Parkinson’s patient support

A father-of-two who has Parkinson’s disease says his life has been transformed by a dog trained to help him with mobility and stability. Duncan Hughes, from Dublin, partnered with Leon, a black labrador, just over six months ago. The pilot project by the Dublin Neurological Institute at the Mater Hospital is a first for Ireland and possibly the world.

Watch the video below by the RTE News Team to see the amazing and heart warming story Prof. Lynch and the team at the DNI & UCD are creating with Duncan and Leon.
