Our Care Services
ALS Arizona offers a full range of services to guide and assist you as you learn more about ALS. Here you will find important information for people living with ALS, caregivers, family members, friends, and healthcare workers. In addition to serving people living with ALS, we provide services to people with Primary Lateral Sclerosis (PLS) and Primary Muscular Atrophy (PMA).
Each year, through innovative programming and extensive community support, we provide free programs and services to more than 600 of Arizona’s families who are facing the challenges of ALS.
Our staff is available Monday through Friday to answer any questions you may have so please do not hesitate to reach out.

Medical Equipment Program
Durable Medical Equipment (DME) is any equipment that provides therapeutic benefits to a person in need because of a medical condition and/or illness. This equipment is meant to be durable enough to withstand repetitive use.
Centers & Clinics
The multidisciplinary care model brings together a team of health care professionals specifically trained to address the needs of people living with ALS, allowing you to receive care from each discipline during a single visit.
In-person and virtual support groups for people living with ALS, caregivers, family members, and friends.
We understand these unique challenges and provide resources designed specifically to support caregivers. Caregiver support groups, Caregiver Skills trainings, Caregiver Appreciation, and Care Connections, are just a few of the ways we are here to help.

This program serves youth ages 6 – 18 who all have one thing in common—they love someone with ALS. Interactive, fun events give kids a break from the realities of ALS and enable them build connections with peers who understand. Ask your Care Services Coordinator for more information.

Although research indicates that pALS who regularly attend clinics live longer, fuller lives, accessible transportation can often become a barrier to continued participation in medical care. Wheelchair accessible transportation to/from ALS clinic appointments is available if you are not able to acquire an accessible vehicle.
Respite Care Program
As the disease progresses, the 24-hour care required for a person living with ALS typically falls on a family member who must also continue the duties of maintaining a household. The Respite Care program provides funding to allow for a much needed break from the rigors of daily caregiving.
When it comes to managing your symptoms, some challenges are best addressed by a consultant who understands the secondary medical concerns that may arise as a result of ALS disease progression.
