My father has ALS. I am his caregiver. It is really difficult. I have come to terms with the fact that I will be losing him, I think. The hardest part right now is dealing with how stubborn he is. He lives an hour away from me and by himself. He refuses to live with me or my Grandmother. He falls frequently and I am terrified that something is going to happen to him and know one will know because he is alone. I go up there several times a week and help him as much as he will let me. I can't imagine what this is like for him. Does anyone have any advice.
