Lou Gehrig’s Disease Care in Long Beach
Compassionate In Home Care for Elders
Lou Gehrig’s Disease, also known as Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS), is a neurodegenerative disease that affects the individual’s ability to walk, get out of bed in the mornings, or use their hands and arms – which are essential to almost every task of daily living. ALS causes progressive degeneration of motor neurons that are responsible for sending nerve impulses from your brain, to spinal cord, to all of your muscles.
Muscle weakness, muscle shrinkage, and muscle rigidity make essential tasks of daily living such as dressing, locking a door, walking down stairs, and driving difficult, as well as errands such as grocery shopping and bill preparation. As the disease progresses, disabilities with speech, swallowing, and breathing can make daily living even more burdensome.
A-1 Home Care can provide dedicated Lou Gehrig’s Disease Care for Elderly and Senior individuals on a 24 Hour Live-In Care or Hourly Care basis. Having a caregiver around can make daily living more manageable for your loved one. Our caregivers can assist with personal care services such as dressing, toileting, and personal hygiene management, driving your loved one to specified destinations, grocery shopping, providing healthy meals, medication reminders, exercise assistance, and anything else you specify.
All of our compassionate ALS caregivers, home helpers, companions, and nurse aides must have at least two 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.
