Lou Gehrig’s Disease Care
Lou Gehrig’s Disease/ALS Care
Elderly and Senior individuals who have Lou Gehrig’s Disease, also known as Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS) suffer from progressing symptoms of muscle weakness, muscle cramps, muscle stiffness, slurred speech, swallowing, speaking, and breathing difficulties, incontinence, and eventually paralysis in late stages. The disease is a neurodegenerative disorder that destroys the motor neurons responsible for relaying signals from your brain, to spine, to muscles.
ALS progression makes all areas of daily living difficult. People with Lou Gehrig’s Disease may require assistance getting out of bed or a chair, walking, dressing, showering, maintaining personal hygiene, eating, cooking, reaching for items in cabinets and many other daily tasks.
