How Our Home Care Assistance for Seniors Helps Those With Parkinson's and ALS
Clients with amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS), Parkinson’s Disease or those who simply struggle with mobility issues can receive strategic and carefully-crafted home care assistance for seniors in order to live independently and complete daily tasks of living.
No caregivers are challenged more than those caring for ALS patients. Patients with ALS need increasing assistance with all activities of daily living, their ability to speak or write diminishes, and the physical demands of their care become more onerous just when it becomes riskier to leave them unattended. Even with paid assistance for seniors, it has been estimated that ALS caregivers spend 11 hours every day with the patient and feel a strong sense of responsibility for their care and indeed survival, especially when mechanical ventilation is used.
At Comfort Keepers we’re recognized as a certified provider of ALS care by the U.S. ALS Association. Our caregivers are specially trained to adapt care to the needs of clients with ALS and Parkinson’s disease or other motor-function related illnesses or disabilities. These caregivers help make us the primary provider of mobility care in Southeast Missouri.
