The immense benefits of round the clock caregivers for La Canada seniors

How to take care of yourself while living with ALS

Symptoms of ALS often begin near midlife, with innocuous subtlety. You notice occasional freezing of the fingers or twitching in your arm. Or your limbs won’t cooperate at random times of the day. Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis, like many other diseases, sneaks up on you with little warning. As the patient experiences body degeneration, curious details remain. The parts of the body that are paralyzed can still fully feel; the nerves connected to touch are not affected. It is the ability to move that is taken away.

Lou Gehrig’s disease is a progressive neurodegenerative affliction that attacks and kills nerve cells in the brain and spinal cord. The cells that are affected are called the motor neurons, and run from the spinal cord to different parts of the body. As these cells die off, muscles weaken and atrophy, leading to paralysis. At this point, it becomes impossible to cope without family assistance or in home care.
