Caregivers of persons living with ALS undertake a very important role in the daily life of their loved one. Their devotion, however, can exact an enormous personal toll that can adversely affect the caregiver’s physical and psychological health. Team Gleason’s commitment to providing respite care affords caregivers the time and peace of mind to focus on their own needs and interests. These intervals of relief, whether they be a few hours a week or multiple days per month, offer caregivers the opportunity to reduce stress, restore energy and maintain balance.
“ALS not only impacts the patients, but all of those who love and care for them. It’s easy for caretakers to forget about themselves, which leads to physical and mental exhaustion. Steve and I are fortunate to have a great care team. It’s important to us to offer respite care to those who don’t have it.”
