My mobile signal is disappearing

I live rurally (zip 95629) and 5 yrs ago, there was 1 spot on my property to make calls. Then my area got a Tower 3.5 yrs ago (it’s 8 miles away) and then we had decent service, even in the house. This last year however, is gotten worse & worse and I often show no signal at all, calls out (in good spots) get the auto Verizon message or immediate drops. How can I have service now that’s worse than when there wasn’t a tower in the area?  I heard Verizon was discontinuing the CDMA, so now my phone is on global. I cannot do WiFi phone, though my husband has resorted to that for his remote work. What sort of signal /antenna /booster can help? Signal was here just fine, but now I cannot get anything strong enough to make a call, unless I get on the roof (not feasible, thanks) I can’t even call 611 for support & text couldn’t help. Please advise me. I don’t like being home with my kids in the rural country and not having a working phone for emergencies.

What do you think about these antenna signal booster/ repeater things that can be purchased? I’m not talking about gambling with a big buck purchase, but I’ve seen some that are reasonable if they work.  What I’ve seen are indoor receiver with cable to outdoor antenna mount. Ebay has tons, but it lists them by specifics which I’m not sure which to seek. Read item feedbacks & tons of people bought & thought it helped. What is your thoughts on them?
