What Can I Do To Help?
The impact of an ALS diagnosis is profound. It’s not uncommon for daily tasks, such as meals, laundry, and children’s activities, to be less of a priority when providing care for a loved one with the disease. Caregivers may feel defeated by the growing list of tasks they are no longer able to manage.
It’s often hard to know when and how to ask friends and neighbors for help. And for those who want to offer a helping hand, it’s difficult to know just what is needed and how to make a difference.
Now, when someone asks what they can do to help, the answer is “give me your name and email address so I can provide access to our ALS Care Connection page.” ALS Care Connection is a private online calendar that can be used to support the entire family – by organizing volunteers to take care of some of those tasks families describe as “falling through the cracks.”
