Lou Gehrig’s Disease Care in Newport Beach, CA

ALS Caregivers for Elderly and Seniors

Lou Gehrig’s Disease, also known as Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis, is a disease that progressively degenerates the muscles of the body, making movement and the most simple tasks of daily living difficult. ALS causes muscle weakness and atrophy throughout the body because the upper and lower motor neurons of the brain and spinal cord slowly become damaged. There is little known about the cause of the disease other than some genetic association.

At A-1 Home Care, we know how difficult it can be to have an obligation to provide care for your Elderly or Senior loved one when you don’t have the time or living distance makes it impossible. We provide compassionate and experienced Lou Gehrig’s Disease Care on a 24 hour Live-In Care or Hourly Care basis to help your loved one maintain their independence at home.

No matter what stage of the disease your loved one may be in, our ALS caregivers can assist with personal care, healthy meal preparation, daily errands, light housekeeping, and exercise to help your loved one with mobility. If your loved one is seeing a physical, occupational, or speech therapist, our caregivers can help by following through with recommended at home exercises or daily routines.

All of our ALS caregivers, nurse aides, companions, and home helpers 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 interview with our office staff.
