Newly Diagnosed

If you or a loved one has recently been diagnosed with ALS, or is in the midst of the diagnostic process, now is the time to take charge of your situation and understand your options. Our Chapter can connect you with reliable information to get organized, to feel more in control, to know what questions to ask and to connect with others who are going through the same process. There are many questions about the disease, the prognosis and the treatments available, questions about insurance coverage, health care resources, equipment needs, and how to obtain support for yourself and your family. Our Care Services staff is here to help you and your family navigate this path. The progression of ALS varies significantly from one person to another. We are here to respond to your individual needs. If you have not already registered with our chapter, please do so. You can register here, call 800-681-9851 ext 100 or email us at careservices@alsa-or.org

For information about receiving care from a multidisciplinary team who will follow you through the course of the disease, we encourage you to consider an ALS Treatment Centers.

We encourage you to call and set up a home visit so that we can answer any specific questions you may have and discuss how we can continue to help you and your family navigate the information, the decisions, and the resources needed.  

We are here to support the person who has ALS and also the community around them – family members, friends, co-workers and more. We encourage you to take advantage of all of the care services available. 

We are honored to help you in any way we can. Call us at 800-681-9851 ext. 100 or email us at careservices@alsa-or.org
