The ALS Association Care Connection
When learning about someone living with ALS; family and friends often offer and want to help. At the same time, caregivers may not be clear about the help they want or need, or may feel uncomfortable asking for assistance with cooking, shopping, laundry, house and yard work. Our Chapter would therefore like to offer assistance through The Care Connection. The Care Connection program provides assistance in organizing your community of volunteers, so that all can feel supported.
For more information please visit the following website or contact our Chapter Care Services at 412-821-3254.
