Home Care for Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS)
In-Home Care Services for patients with ALS or Lou Gehrig’s Disease in Chicago’s North and Near North Side Communities including the Gold Coast, Andersonville, Lakeview, Lincoln Park, Edgewater, and Streeterville.
Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS), or Lou Gehrig’s Disease, leads to muscle weakening and affects the client’s ability to control voluntary movements of the muscles including those that control breathing.
There is a progressive loss of ability for the patient to be independent in their care; our caregivers understand through special training how to best care for someone living with ALS.
They can assist with mobility and transfers, plan and prepare special diets to facilitate good nutrition, and offer emotional support allowing the client enough time to communicate, always being sensitive to the preservation of the client’s dignity.
