ALS of Michigan provided critically-needed programs and services to pALS and families, all at no charge. On average, over 400 individuals were on service at any given time in over 50 counties across Michigan.


Outreach HOURS

Our professional social work staff provided outreach, emotional support, education, home visits, transportation assistance and referrals to community resources.



Support group meetings were held several times a month via Zoom to provide a supportive environment where pALS, family members, and caregivers could discuss and share their experiences with ALS.



pALS who needed help communicating were served by our speech pathologist through our Augmentative and Alternative Communication Center. Services included evaluation of needs, recommendations of equipment and specialized training.


in-home care HOURS FUNDED

Our Respite Care Assistance Program funded in-home care for over 100 pALS and their caregivers at a cost of nearly $110,000. This service was provided by more than 55 separate home healthcare agencies across Michigan.


Equipment loans and shipments

A variety of medical equipment was loaned to pALS including ramps, transport wheelchairs, power wheelchairs, communication devices, hoyer lifts and more. We also shipped hundreds of items across the state including bedside tables, wheelchair cushions, walkers, bathing and toileting items and other supplies that made living with ALS easier.


Seminars and Caregiver events

Special presentations on home care, estate planning, coping with life challenges, hospice care and making your home more accessible were hosted for pALS and their families. Our Conversations with Caregivers series provided a comfortable and casual setting to help ease the stress on those caring for a pALS.
ALS of Michigan also funded social workers to staff the Henry Ford Harry J. Hoenselaar ALS Clinic and provided supplies for pALS served there and at the University of Michigan ALS Center of Excellence. Supplies included adaptive eating utensils, cervical collars and more.
