ALS Support Groups

Support Groups provide opportunities for people living with ALS and their loved ones to share their personal experiences and learn more about strategies for preserving independence and maximizing quality of life. All Golden West Chapter Support Groups are facilitated by our professional Care Managers with extensive experience in ALS. With many monthly Support Groups to choose from, our goal is to provide one that is convenient for you and your loved ones.

 

Julianne Angel and family

“An ALS support group is really just a camaraderie of amazing people,
many of whom are dealing with the same issues, who share information.
We form strong friendships with each other and
with our families about our shared experiences.” - Julianne Angel
