Support for ALS Patients and Their Families

The Gift of Strength in Every Helping Hand

ALS (Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis) brings unique challenges that require a strong network of support. Families navigating this journey need customized support that allows them to focus on what matters most. There can be a stigma around asking for help, but when ALS families do ask, it gives friends and family satisfying ways to support them and fulfill a genuine desire to be helpful.

Ways to Support ALS Patients and Their Families

Offer Emotional Support: Regular check-ins and kind words can make a big difference, helping patients and their families feel less isolated and more loved.

Assist with Mobility: Help with transportation, mobility around the house, or outings to maintain independence and community connection.

Prepare Meals: Organize meal deliveries to provide nutritious, home-cooked meals, reducing stress and allowing for quality family time.

Help with Chores: Taking on household tasks like cleaning, gardening, or laundry can significantly reduce the family's burden.

Organize Play Dates: For families with children, play dates give caregivers a much-needed break for self-care or focusing on the patient’s needs.

The Benefits of Stepping Up

When supporters step up, ALS patients and their families can avoid feelings of isolation, helplessness, and stress. A reliable support system allows them to focus on their journey with greater peace of mind.
