Our Care Services

Care Services is the top priority for ALS San Diego led by our Care Services Director, Keith Miller.

If you're a person with ALS or you care for one, we're here to support you and your family. We'll connect you with the local resources you need, including equipment loans from our Durable Medical Equipment (DME) Loan Program, grants to help with ALS-related expenses, and access to ALS clinics and clinical trials.

The progression of ALS varies significantly from one person to another. Responding to each person's individual needs and meeting them where they are in the journey with ALS, our local organization is available to provide vital services and reliable information to improve quality of life.

Home Visits and Case Management

Our team offers individual support through one-on-one case management to assess needs, provide guidance, connect with local resources and help families plan and adjust to life with ALS. By visiting with people living with ALS and their families in their homes, we are able to offer practical ideas for sustaining their quality of life, and provide much needed information and resources.
