Lou Gehrig’s Disease Care in Fountain Valley, CA

companion care


Lou Gehrig’s Disease, also known as Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis, is a progressive disorder that affects the upper and lower motor neurons of the central nervous system, more specifically, the brain and spinal cord. The disease causes degeneration of the neurons that control muscle movement. As the nerve cells are destroyed, the muscles throughout the body progressively weaken and in late stages of the disease, the individual can become completely paralyzed, eventually unable to chew, swallow, speak, or breathe.

If your Elderly or Senior loved one has ALS, activities of living can become increasingly difficult, if they aren’t already. Your loved one may need assistance with the simplest tasks such as getting out of bed in the morning, bathing, brushing teeth, opening doors, walking, and more. At A-1 Home Care, we understand how frustrated and concerned you may be when your loved one begins to struggle with daily living.

A-1 Home Care provides Lou Gehrig’s Disease/ALS Care for Elders and Seniors on a 24-hour or Hourly Care basis. All our qualified ALS 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.

No matter what stage of Lou Gehrig’s Disease your loved one may be in, providing dedicated in-home care can ensure their safety and minimize the risk of an accidental fall, which is a common and preventable risk among the Elderly.

To interview and hire a compassionate caregiver in your area today, CALL us at (562) 929-8400 or at (949) 650-3800 for a FREE assessment.
