Lou Gehrig’s Disease Care in Century City, Santa Monica, Hollywood, Hawthorne, Glendale, Burbank

Lou Gehrig’s Disease Care in Century City, CA

In Home Care for ALS

Lou Gehrig’s Disease, also known as Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis, is a progressive neurodegenerative disease that affects the motor neurons responsible for controlling muscle movement. As the motor neurons die, the brain cannot initiate and control muscle movement.

ALS places significant handicaps on an individual, especially in advanced stages of the disease where walking, speaking, swallowing, and breathing can be severely impacted. The disease causes muscles to shrink in size and muscle power for voluntary movements is lost..

If you have an Elderly or Senior loved one who has Lou Gehrig’s Disease, A-1 Home Care can provide caregivers, nurse aides, companions, and home health aides who can provide care at home when you’re unable to.

Our homecare professionals can assist with mobility assistance, automobile transportation, healthy meal preparation, range of motion exercise or aerobic exercise, dressing or undressing, bathing, errands, and anything else they might need assistance with.

All of our caregivers 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 review to ensure that our caregivers have great personalities.
