Tip of the Week

Since ALS is a terminal disease, if you have ALS, seeing a social worker or psychologist is extremely beneficial. A psychologist or social worker can provide support to the patient as well as their caregiver and family members. A social worker or psychologist can also help people with ALS cope with the feelings of shock, anger, and sadness they may experience, especially if there are signs of depression. Social workers can help the patient and family members decide on hospice care during the end stages of the disease.
