mary,

Are you in touch with the local ALS Association? Does your mother go to an ALS clinci?

Where do you live (city/town)? If we knew that, the forum could help direct you to organizations in your area that could benefit you and your Mom.

I syour Mom on Medicare or Medicaid?

We need more information. Rest assured we want to help you.

ALS and taking care of your parents and your own kids - I'm very sorry you are going thru this!

Hello Mary- You certainly have a lot on your plate right now. It is hard enough balancing the care of 2 small children with one very ill family member, never mind two! I hope you manage to find some time for rest and relaxation for yourself in all of this! Write to us anytime, about anything that is on your mind! Cindy
