ALS & MS Home Care We can be part of your support team and help you maintain your way of life while living with the disorder.  We believe that every person has the ability to grow, even when living with a degenerative disorder.  Let us provide respite care to enable spouses or adult children to continue their lives outside the disease.  We can assist with preparing healthy meals, providing transportation, and doing exercises.  We can also assist with bathing, dressing, and toileting as the disease progresses.  Our caregivers can be given specialized training for ALS & MS home care through Homewatch CareGivers University.  We would be happy to make those courses available to family members as well.

ALS or Lou Gehrig's Disease leads to muscle weakening and affects one’s ability to control voluntary movements of the muscles including those that control breathing. As a person progressively loses their ability to function independently, they will require additional care in the home. Our caregivers can assist with mobility and transfers, plan and prepare special diets to facilitate good nutrition, and offer emotional support allowing the client enough time to communicate, always being sensitive to the preservation of the client’s dignity.
Parkinson’s disease gradually affects the nervous system to the point where the affected person will need help with ambulation, daily chores, personal grooming, and more. Our caregivers have specialized training to help if your loved one experiences cognitive symptoms associated with Parkinson’s disease. We are here to support the family caregivers who may not be able to manage all of the care for all Parkinson’s symptoms.
The symptoms of multiple sclerosis vary by individual, but as this unpredictable and disabling illness of the central nervous system advances it disrupts the flow of information between the brain and the body. While many people with MS experience a years-long remission of the disease, others may lose the ability to walk and require additional care for daily activities.
