Default Need better care at home? This is what to do

Send an email to the ALS Association president, Barbara Newhouse, at this address:

bnewhouse (at) alsa-national.org

This is all you have to say:

"Dear Ms. Newhouse, Please make home health care an advocacy priority."

Optionally, you can also describe how a PALS has suffered from getting not enough help at home.

Now is the time to send this email. The ALS Association is seriously considering making home care into one of its "advocacy priorities," and the more PALS and CALS they hear from at this time, the more likely this will finally become a priority for them.
