Examining the Causes of Lou Gehrig’s Disease

July 30, 2018

Up to this point, the most recent findings about we have about amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) come from a study conducted by Cedars-Sinai researchers.  This study, published in the journal Science (2016), reveals that genetic mutations in immune cells in the brain play a direct role in the development of ALS, more commonly known as Lou Gehrig’s disease.  Genetic causes, however, only account for 5-10% of ALS cases (Mayo Clinic, 2016).  Scientists suspect other causes, such as smoking, military service and exposure to lead.  Lou Gehrig’s disease remains an enigma to researchers, and though no cure exists, there are ways to help elderly loved ones live as normally as possible.  A-1 Home Care in Calabasas provides such care for seniors in the comfort of their own homes.

What Your Elderly Loved One Needs

Caring for an aging loved one is no easy task for family members who have not received formal training in home care.  In-home care adds stress for the spouse and/or adult children, and even more so if the adult children come home tired from a long day at work and have other family duties to tend to, such as cooking for the whole family and being there for their kids.  A-1 Home Care provides skilled non-medical in-home support with cooking, cleaning, errands, light housekeeping, and companion care in Calabasas and surrounding cities.  Round-the-clock care isn’t just for the care recipient; you can enjoy in-home services for the whole family too if you don’t feel like cooking or doing laundry after a full day’s work.  Your elderly loved one will need constant, undivided attention from a 24-hour caregiver as Lou Gehrig’s disease progresses, and hiring live-in care will be one of the best decisions you’ve ever made with A-1 Home Care.
