Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS), also referred to as "Lou Gehrig's Disease," is a degenerative Neuromuscular disease that affects nerve cells in the brain and the spinal cord. The progressive degeneration of these cells initially begins with the weakening of the motor neurons throughout the body eventually leads to their death. When the motor neurons die, the ability of the brain to initiate and control muscle movement is lost. With voluntary muscle action progressively affected, patients with advanced stages of the disease may potentially become totally paralyzed.
Multiple sclerosis (MS) is an unpredictable, often disabling disease of our central nervous system (Brain & Spinal Cord). MS can occur at any age. It is most commonly diagnosed between the ages of 15 - 40. MS is not a fatal disease, with Medical treatments and coping strategies such as Home Care, patients can cope with it's challenges effectively and live a normal lifestyle.
Parkinson's is a Neurodegenerative disease that affects the functioning of Dopamine (Neuro Chemicals that carry signals between Brain and Nerves). As the disease progresses, motor function and other effects such as depression, difficulty swallowing, cognition begin to regress. Along with medical treatments, having a home health-care treatment plan can be very helpful in helping patients/clients meet their individual needs and live a quality lifestyle.

With the right support structure in place, individuals with advanced stages of MS, ALS or Parkinson's can live a rich life of fulfillment.
