ALS is a disease in which patients will have an average survival rate of two to five years after being diagnosed. As the disease progresses, it removes the person's ability to carry out daily activities and care for themselves. Home Health Care will be able to provide a nurse or aide who will come into the home and evaluate if the needs of the person with ALS are being met. This is especially useful for patients who are already wheelchair bound or their caregivers, who might need a break.
