For Patients

An ALS diagnosis brings a lot of questions about the disease, treatment, and how to live your best life. Here are some resources for Texans living with ALS.

For People With ALS & Caregivers

We are committed to providing ALS patients and their caregivers, medical professionals, and families the most comprehensive, up-to-date information on the disease alongside top-quality medical care at our ALS Association Certified Treatment Centers and Clinics. Some of our care services include:

  • Community support groups & counseling
  • Transportation assistance
  • An Equipment Loan Bank, where patients can borrow assistive equipment on a long-term basis
  • Assistance with finding and obtaining community or government resources
  • Multidisciplinary medical care under one roof

Are You Newly Diagnosed With ALS?

Once you’ve been diagnosed with ALS, you probably have plenty of questions about the disease, its treatment, and how to live your best life. Navigating systems for insurance and other government benefits can be overwhelming. We can help you understand health insurance, disability and Social Security, and point you in the direction of the best healthcare facilities. We’re committed to helping patients at every stage of the disease access resources in their local community that can provide support of all kinds for ALS patients. Register with us to get started.

Are You A U.S. Military Veteran?

We are fiercely committed to supporting our veterans and active-duty soldiers in the United States Armed Forces, who are nearly twice as likely to develop ALS. In addition to medical research that focuses specifically on figuring out why veterans are at such a high risk for ALS, we’ve also created a wealth of resources for veterans, their caregivers, and families. Local Veterans Service Organizations can help veterans navigate the Veterans Administration and apply for benefits. We also encourage veterans to get involved in our advocacy efforts to make sure veterans receive the care that they not only deserve, but that they have earned.

Do You Provide Care For A Person With ALS?

Caring for an ALS patient is a willing decision, made from love and devotion to the person who has been diagnosed. Caregivers for ALS patients face a unique set of challenges, and we want to do everything in our power to make this road a little easier. Over time, providing constant care can take a real toll on the caregiver’s physical and mental health, so support is crucial. At our ALS Association Certified Treatment Centers and through our website, caregivers can access resources that will help them provide the best care to the person that they love, along with helping them maintain their own health and happiness throughout the process.
