1:1 Counseling Support

Seeking an ALS diagnosis, managing symptoms, or caring for a loved one with this disease requires self-care and a close support network. The ALS Network is here to ensure that you are not alone on your ALS journey. 

We offer short-term financial assistance for counseling, as well as referrals to therapists who know and understand ALS. For more information on this program, please contact your care manager, or email us at careservices@alsnetwork.org.

Free Mindfulness and Meditation App

In partnership with a meditation/mindfulness app called Waking Up (wakingup.com), we offer a free six-month subscription for those living with ALS and their caregivers and loved ones. Practicing mindfulness and meditation may help you manage stress and high blood pressure, sleep better, and feel more balanced and connected.

Please reach out to your care manager for the promo code, or contact careservices@alsnetwork.org. Once the trial subscription expires, you can renew again for free with the same code.

Connect, Support, Chat Groups

For those who are interested in connecting with others who understand the disease journey, the ALS Network offers connection groups that 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 ALS Network groups are facilitated by our professional Care Managers, who have extensive experience in ALS. With many monthly options to choose from, our goal is to provide support that is convenient for you and your loved ones.

Wherever you are in your journey with ALS, the ALS Network is here for you.
