Lou Gehrig’s Disease, also known as Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS), affects about 5,000 Americans every year. It is a fatal disease that destroys the motor neurons controlling voluntary muscle movement. The first areas affected by ALS are the extremities, such as legs and arms. Early symptoms of Lou Gehrig’s Disease include weakness in arms, awkwardness in walking, more frequent stumbling or tripping. Other small signs may be difficulty in performing small tasks such as turning a key in the lock or buttoning a shirt.
In-home health care becomes increasingly important as ALS progresses. It is a debilitating disease that weighs heavily not only on the suffering individual but also family members as well.
