ALS or Lou Gehrig’s Disease Home Care

Home care for people with ALS is intended to reduce the stress and anxiety on the patient and their family that can come with ALS.  Effective caregiving can provide a sense of relief and allow the patient to live more confidently and independently at home.

More about ALS

ALS stands for Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis which is often referred to as “Lou Gehrig’s Disease.”  This condition is a progressive neurodegenerative disease that affects motor neurons in the brain and the spinal cord.  The progressive degeneration of the motor neurons in ALS eventually causes patients to lose control of their body.  Patients in the later stages of the disease may become completely paralyzed.

Early symptoms of ALS

Family caregivers can be vulnerable to fatigue, burnout, and stress.  Caregivers can feel “defeated” by the growing list of tasks that they are no longer able to manage and because they may feel like they never get a break.

Home Care for ALS

Help reduce stress for the entire family.

ALS affects the entire family.  Many people are diagnosed with ALS in the “prime of life.”  Initially the caregiver for someone with ALS is often their spouse or other family member.  As demands on the caregiver increase, daily life may become unmanageable, creating stress for the entire family.

Caregivers help support family members

Family caregivers can be vulnerable to fatigue, burnout, and stress.  Caregivers can feel “defeated” by the growing list of tasks that they are no longer able to manage and because they may feel like they never get a break.
