Care Services

Our Chapter offers a full range of services to guide and assist you as you learn more about ALS. Here you will find pertinent information for patients, caregivers, family members, friends and healthcare workers. Our staff is here Monday through Friday to answer any questions you may have. Please don't hesitate to call or e-mail us for more information click here

A diagnosis of ALS can be overwhelming, confusing, and frightening. If you or a family member has recently received a diagnosis of ALS, you probably have questions about the disease, the prognosis and the treatments available.

In addition to serving PALS (people with ALS), the Chapter provides services to people with primary lateral sclerosis (PLS) who live in our service area of Washington, DC, Maryland, and Virginia.

The Patient and Family Services staff of the DC/MD/VA Chapter is committed to providing comprehensive support and resources to patients, caregivers, family members, friends and health care workers.

Our services are free of charge and we are continually expanding and refining our initiatives to serve the needs of the ALS community. Click on the links at left for more information about our programs.

We can send you an information packet describing the services our Chapter provides. You can also receive our Chapter newsletter, The ALS Association Connection or sign up for our online newsletter Connections.
