Some tasks the monkeys learn are: fetching and setting up a drink of water; scratching itches; repositioning arms and feet after muscle spasms; turning on/off lights; loading DVDs or CDs; repositioning reading glasses; and turning the pages of a book. For "potty activities" the monkeys are trained to return to their cages. Most are also trained to wear a diaper as well. Monkeys typically spend between 3-5 years in Monkey College before being placed with a recipient.
Our service monkeys are provided at no cost to our recipients.
