One of the best ways to cope with the emotional struggles of ALS is to connect with others who understand what you’re going through. To help facilitate these communities, we host three types of support groups throughout Texas: ALS Connection Groups (for anybody who has been affected by ALS), Caregiver Groups, and Bereavement Groups.
If you’re interested in starting a support group in your area, please contact your local Care Services Manager and we’ll do our best to make it happen.
