We understand the impact of ALS on individuals and their loved ones. Our care services help relieve family members of often overwhelming duties while providing their loved ones with the ongoing care they need. We provide individuals with access to therapies, social interaction, and routine care for improved living.
Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) is one of the most difficult issues that a person can face. Also referred to as “Lou Gehrig’s Disease”, ALS is a degenerative disease that affects the central nervous system and impairs the ability of the brain to control the movement of muscles.
As the disease progresses, people become more paralyzed. It’s this progression that can make caring for ALS one of the more difficult treatments for families to undertake. As a result, the need for additional care personnel becomes more essential to long-term care plans.
The progressive loss of function among people affected with ALS leads to difficult stages for family members. They must constantly come to terms with the necessary changes that result from each progressive change in condition.
ALS is ultimately fatal. There is no current cure for the disease, although certain medications can help to prolong the life of people. Medical treatments help ease muscular cramping and fatigue. However, the treatment and care for people with ALS is primarily a system of support throughout the entire disease process.
What many caregivers agree on is the urgency of getting the right care early. We provide staff members that are trained to provide the assistance people need. We value communication to help family members in their difficult decision-making.
ALS care providers must understand the person’s needs, as well as honor the decisions of family members with respect to the care provided. Although communicating with people affected can be difficult, we are committed to providing the connection that people need in throughout their journey with the disease.
Above all, family members must have the reassurance that their loved ones are cared for with the highest level of skill and care.
The effects of ALS can be overwhelming to everyone involved. Its progressive degeneration requires caregivers to adapt accordingly to meet the needs of people suffering. By providing care grounded in expert knowledge, compassion, and understanding, patients will experience relief in the challenges they face each day.
C-Care support workers provide ongoing assistance to individuals suffering from ALS, while providing their families with the peace of mind they need. Our staff can help ease the transition for everyone involved while creating safety and comfort for the individual.
