Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS), also known as Lou Gehrig’s Disease, is a neurodegenerative disease that primarily affects the nerve cells in the brain and spinal cord, eventually causing changes to bodily functions.

No matter what stage you or your loved ones are in, our Care Companions are ready to assist with setting up in-home physical therapy to help promote mobility and flexibility while also providing with everyday tasks such as bathing, dressing, personal hygiene care. Our family caregivers provide services to match your loved one’s needs to take the burden off of your shoulders while providing your loved one with the necessary treatment 24-hours a day.

Having a familiar environment can promote positive results in ALS care which is why our Care Companions are fully equipped to provide specialized physical therapy while minimizing stress and unease, all from the comfort of home. Through ALS-specific training, our home care client’s can have the effects of this disease lessened or delayed to promote more comfort and stability.

Give your loved one—and yourself—newfound peace of mind and independence. At every stage and age, we can help with day-to-day living or advanced healthcare, always guided by our home care client’s unique needs.

What sets Legacy Homecare LA’s ALS treatment apart?

Our biggest, most important differentiator is our commitment to our people—this includes our clients, and unlike many other home health services, our family caregivers. We provide our ALS Care Companions with everything they need to provide the absolute best care to their clients. This includes resources like ALS-specific training from the country’s top programs as well as top-tier benefits such as industry-leading compensation, opportunities for career growth, and guaranteed work that provides much-needed stability. You can rest assured that our ALS Care Companions will create a customized in-home physical therapy program that will help lessen the severe effects of the disease to promote comfort while mitigating stress.

What if my family member doesn’t like their ALS Care Companion?

Any care patient can easily, discreetly switch to a new in-home Care Companion. Despite our thoughtful, in-depth matching process, some ALS care clients have very particular desires and don’t mesh with certain personality types, or may have a sudden change in preference—that’s perfectly okay, and we understand the importance of having your loved one feel comfortable.

Our primary concern is always the ALS patient’s comfort, and that includes their assigned companion. Whether your loved one is feeling uncomfortable or you want a dementia Care Companion with a specific set of medical experience, we’re happy to find you a person better fit.

Homecare needs are different for everyone. No matter what yours are, we can provide specialized care.
