Virtual Group for People Living with ALS, Family & Friends
(all are welcome)
Led by professionals, Support Groups provide opportunities for group members to share their personal experiences and to learn more about living with ALS. Participants learn that they are not alone nor without help or hope. Support Group meetings are free and open to all people living with ALS and their caregivers. Support Groups sometimes feature speakers on relevant topics and are designed to share information as well as strategies for preserving the independence and quality of life of both people living with ALS and their caregivers.
To attend virtual support groups, please contact the group organizer to get a link to the meeting.
