I am new here. I am a psychologist who has been working for awhile now with a family affected by ALS. The person who has ALS is in the final days, and extended family members are struggling with how to be helpful to the immediate family and the ALS patient. Sometimes I feel at a loss about how to be helpful, so I can only imagine how the family and extended family members feel. Would any of you be willing to share with me what you have found to be most helpful as you coped with ALS? Thank you so much.
