Ice Bucket Challenge Progress

 

Welcome to Care Services

 

Through the Chapter’s Arthur and Lea Powell Patient Services Program, a distinguished team of social workers, nurses, and affiliated health care professionals offer help for people with ALS every step of the way—from access to medical equipment and devices that improve accessibility around the home, to assistance in the home by a professional caregiver, and resource groups.

 

Through the generosity of our donors and our robust advocacy efforts at the state and federal levels, we are able to provide most programs and services free of charge to qualified patients and their families.
