ALS Ice Bucket Challenge Progress

 

ALS affects the entire family with changes that can be challenging, stressful and at times frightening. Talking about it sometimes helps, as does having useful information on what to expect and on managing symptoms. The support group is an essential tool in helping patients and their caregivers, families and friends live with ALS. Support groups provide opportunities for group members to share their personal experiences and to learn more about living with ALS. They learn they are not alone nor without help or hope. Meetings are free and open to all patients and concerned others. They occasionally offer speakers on relevant topics and are designed to share information as well as strategies for preserving the independence and quality of life of both people with ALS and their caregivers.

Please call us at (866) ALS-3211 or email CSCoordinator@alsaco.org if you have any questions or would like more information.
