Being the primary caregiver for a loved one with ALS can be stressful — not only are they on-call 24/7, but they may have additional outside responsibilities, like working a full- or part-time job. Often, caregivers are so busy supporting their loved ones that their own physical or mental health takes second priority. It’s important that caregivers get the support and assistance they need so they can care for their loved one to the best of their ability. The Caregiver Program provides caregivers with everything they need to be successful, including workshops, support groups, and connections to caregiver-specific resources.
