CDEE- You don't say where you are located but If you haven't registered with the nearest branch of the ALS Society that would be the first thing to do. They have many programs to help Caregivers and PALS(Persons with ALS) Depending on where you live you may be able to use the services of the Community Care Access Center . In Peel they have Occupational,Physio, Psychological and other counsellors to help people dealing with this and many other serious diseases. They can put you in touch with other agencies that can offer support. I am sorry for your fathers diagnosis and his rapid progression. Hopefully you will be able to take on the responsibility of caring for him. Most of the people here will agree that home care is the best thing, not the easiest but better for the patient. Feel free to ask anything. There are a lot of people here that care.
