Hi Andrew. First of all there is an ALS Clinic in Ottawa and Kingston if you are closer to that way. Get a referral to the clinic. They will set you up with a Community Care Worker that will come to your home for an assessment of the home and tell you whether it is adaptable to take care of your dad. The Occupational Therapist at the clinic will show you devices that may enhance your dad's quality of life. I am just new to this disease myself so am not up on everything but there is a wealth of information available online.
