The ALS Association Cares for Those Who Care the Most in New Campaign
Date:10/26/2009

The ALS Association is encouraging caregivers to voice their concerns about their own health as well as the people who require their help around the clock during National Family Caregivers Month in November.

Calabasas Hills, Calif. (Vocus) October 27, 2009 -- The ALS Association is encouraging caregivers to voice their concerns about their own health as well as the people who require their help around the clock during National Family Caregivers Month in November.

The theme of National Family Caregivers Month is "SpeakUp" and when caregivers speak up The ALS Association is there to listen and help make their lives as easy as possible.

"Most caregivers do not have the time to ask for help because they are too busy meeting the needs of others," said Sharon Matland, vice president of patient services for The Association. "It is our responsibility as an organization to be extra diligent in reaching out to them."

As part of National Family Caregivers Month, The Association is launching "Show You Care," a national campaign to recognize some of the thousands of local primary caregivers critical to protecting and enhancing the quality of life for individuals living with ALS (amyotrophic lateral sclerosis). The daily challenges faced by caregivers, whose own health is adversely affected by providing care on a round the clock basis, will be detailed in a series of profiles featured on The Association's Web site.

Peggy Rode takes care of her husband Jeff Rode, who has ALS, also commonly referred to as Lou Gehrig's Disease. She is active in support group meetings sponsored by The Association's Evergreen Chapter in Kent, Wash., and has learned how to better cope with each new day as the disease progresses.
