Lou Gehrig’s Disease Care in Laguna Beach, CA

Compassionate ALS Caregivers for Elders and Seniors

Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis, also known as Lou Gehrig’s Disease, is a progressive and neurodegenerative disease of the central nervous system that affects the ability of the brain to initiate and control muscle movements throughout the body. Early symptoms may include muscle weakness and shrinking, cramping, stiffness, awkwardness when walking, and difficulty with arm and hand tasks that require manual dexterity. Late symptoms can eventually lead to paralysis and affect the individual’s ability to speak, swallow, and breathe.

When and Elderly or Senior loved one has ALS, activities of daily living can become incredibly difficult as the disease progresses. A-1 Home Care provides compassionate Lou Gehrig’s Disease Care on a 24 hour Live-In Care or Hourly Care basis when you can’t be there to provide the care. Whether it’s helping your loved one get out of bed in the morning, get dressed, walk around the home or preparing nutritious meals and helping your loved one exercise, our Lou Gehrig’s Disease caregivers can help no matter how far the disease has progressed.

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.
