Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS)

A patient  with ALS may be eligible for hospice care if he or she has one or more of these:

~ Trouble breathing even at rest, on oxygen

~ Patient/family decline artificial means of respiratory care (ventilator)

~ Difficulty swallowing

~ Difficulty carrying out daily tasks (because of difficulty breathing or generalized weakness)

~ Weight loss

~ Frequent infections and/or wounds

~ Patient/family decline artificial nutrition (tube feed)

(Call 24 hours a day, 7 days a week)

I want to make a difference for those living with serious illness & loss in Montgomery County.
