Caregiver Program

Being the primary caregiver for a loved one with ALS can be stressful, but ALS Texas is here to support you as you care for your loved one.

Support Groups for ALS Caregivers

Often, caregivers are so busy supporting their loved ones that their own physical or mental health takes second priority. It’s important that caregivers get the support and assistance they need so they can care for their loved one to the best of their ability. The Caregiver Program provides caregivers with everything they need to be successful, including workshops, support groups, and connections to caregiver-specific resources.

Stress Less on Purpose

Join us for a workshop about self-care. You’ll receive an easy and effective first aid kit of exercises for easing your body’s reaction to stress and learn how trauma can guide you in living life more PurposeFULLy. Stress Less on Purpose meets on the fourth Tuesday of every odd month.

Running on Empty

Do you have days or even weeks where you feel you are simply Running on Empty? Join us for a workshop about burnout and compassion fatigue for caregivers of those living with ALS. Running on Empty meets on the fourth Tuesday of every even month.

National Family Caregivers’ Month

November is National Family Caregivers month, a time to recognize and honor family caregivers across the country. While ALS Texas is focused on these things year around, November provides us a bonus opportunity to raise awareness of caregiving issues, educate our community, support caregiver self-care and mental health, and increase support for ALS Texas caregivers of all ages.
