Lou Gehrig’s Disease Care in Encino, CA

Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis, also known as Lou Gehrig’s Disease, is a neurodegenerative disease of the central nervous system that degenerates the upper and lower motor neurons of the brain and spinal cord. These nerve cells are responsible for muscle movement, so when they are degenerated, it causes the muscles to shrink, become weak, and in late stages of the disease, all muscle movement and dexterity may be lost. Individuals may experience complications with movement, swallowing, speech, and breathing.

No matter what stage of Lou Gehrig’s Disease your loved one may be in and how advanced the symptoms are, A-1 Home Care can provide a compassionate and experienced caregiver for Lou Gehrig’s Disease Care. When your loved one has ALS, it is essential to provide living assistance, especially with activities of daily activities such as walking, opening a door, getting dressed, preparing meals, or going out into town. Activities and tasks become difficult and potentially dangerous when your loved one lacks muscle control.


All of our Lou Gehrig’s Disease 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.
