Providing an alternative methodfor helping veterans with PTSD
For Veteran's Sake Foundation is here to provide an alternative solution to dealing with PTS (Post Traumatic Stress). We use a combination of a (Non-Therapeutic) Neuro-Traumatic Resourcing, Service Dogs and consulting. Working with the veteran and their family/caretakers we explore every avenue to help them regain a Positive Mental Attitude or to Manage Situational Stress. We work with everyone involved to help the Veteran to Enhance Personal Skills and Assets. Once we discover their Apprehensions or Fears a decision can be made weather or not to offer a Service Dog. This process helps us to create a training prograim for the Service Dog and to provide a postitive pairing between the K9 and Veteran . Understanding that the spouse also can be suffering from secondary PTS is another area that we offer help. Many times the family/spouses are left with nowhere to turn. We want to be there for all involved when it comes to dealing with this unseen wound. Allow us and our staff to assist you or somebody you may know showing symptoms of PTS. All that is required is you are willing to accept help. (We always encourage the involvement of the Veterans current Doctor or medical professional).
