The National Parkinson's Disease Foundation should be able to help and they also have information listed about how to qualify for a guide dog and who could help. If your visual impairment is within the specific criteria to be eligible for a guide dog agencies that help people who are bliding or visually impaired could help as well.
I have been legally blind for over 20 yrs but still can get from place to place and now 3 yrs ago was diagnosed as having Parkinson's disease. I have called the Parkinson's Foundation and other agencies but due to having typical loss of volume I can not make my needs clear enough. At this point I don't know if I need a guide dog due to my vision loss or a service dog due to my Parkinson's although I tend to think my Parkinson's is getting worse while my vision is holding steady. I would appreciate any advise you may provide. And completing this message was terribly difficult due to the small font size.
