We are permanently suspending all new placements, but are committed to the care of all our service monkeys. Learn More.

Apply for a Monkey

We support all our service monkeys for their entire lives.

What is the placement week?

The placement week is when the Helping Hands staff comes to your home to bring the service monkey and to train you and your family and caretakers. This training usually lasts 4-6 days and you can expect to work between 6-8 hours/day with our staff and your new monkey. We try to plan our schedule as much as possible around your daily routine but we do require that recipients clear their schedules that week to give us the maximum amount of time together.
