Lou Gehrig’s Care
Experienced Caregivers with Neurodegenerative Disorders
Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) also known as Lou Gehrig’s Disease, is a neurodegenerative disorder that progressively destroys the motor neurons that are responsible for relaying signals from the brain, to spinal cord, to muscles throughout the body. Individuals with A.L.S. suffer from muscle weakness that places great strain on mobility and in late stages of the disease, brings about difficulties with breathing, speaking, and swallowing. If you have an Elderly or Senior loved one who has Lou Gehrig’s Disease, their independence and safety at home can be prolonged with an experienced caregiver from A-1 Domestic. We understand that it may be difficult for you to provide dedicated in-home care when there are other pressures and ongoing obligations of daily life.
24 Hour Care for Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis
Our experienced ALS caregivers are available for 24 hour Live-In Care or Hourly Care. Living alone with ALS can be dangerous with weak muscles and muscle stiffness. Even with a cane or walker, getting up and down staircases or wet bathroom floors can be potentially hazardous. Our caregivers can provide the most attentive supervision to ensure that your loved one is safe at all times. All of our Lou Gehrig’s Disease caregivers, nurse aides, companions, and home helpers must have at least 2 years of prior at home caregiving experience, verifiable professional references, a National Background Check/DMV Check, Tuberculosis testing, Malpractice/Liability insurance, First Aid/CPR training, and a personal interview with our office staff.
