Coordinating help for the patient and their caregivers
Many people with ALS require physical care, and finding the best ways to meet those needs is a collaborative process between the patient, loved ones, and their ALS health care team. Click here to explore information about care resources and services.
In addition to outside agencies and resources, we encourage you to explore the resource of the concerned friends and family around you. It can be an emotional and organizational challenge to ask for and coordinate help from people who care about you, even when they offer. This link provides practical advice and a step by step video “How-to” to build your own care team! Click here for information on “The Care Connection.”
