Programs and Services
Receiving a diagnosis of ALS is challenging and overwhelming. There is so much to know, a great deal to consider, and typically a host of questions.
The ALS Association is dedicated to providing you and your family and friends with information, support and resources you need to live a fuller life and better meet the daily challenges of living with ALS. If you've been diagnosed with ALS, click the link below to register with our Chapter.
Through the Care Services Department, our Chapter offers a comprehensive nextwork of in-home services free of charge to patient and family members. Additionally, a strong alliance exists with other not-for-profit organizations that are familiar with ALS. Lastly, a community partnership program with multiple local service providers offers specialized services to patients and families. Through these collective efforts, the Chapter has created a continuum of care for ALS patients in Easter Missouri as well as Central and Southern Illinois.
Through case management, patient services coordinators will meet with your family to assist you in navigating through the health systems, increase functional independence, and help you maintain control of your healthcare throughout your journey with ALS. They will also work to identify other community resources, ALS specific and general healthcare, to support your family as well.
