Our Care Services
ALS United Greater Chicago provides exceptional care services, the latest resources and information, and premier programming for Persons Living with ALS, their families and caregivers. We are proud to currently serve the Chicagoland area, Northern and Central Illinois, and part of Northwest Indiana.
There is no cost to Persons Living with ALS and their families for any of the services we provide.
I have used most of the services that ALS United Greater Chicago has to offer. I attend monthly support groups and obtain care services. I have received supplies from the lending closet, benefited from one-on-one counseling, participated in the annual Walks to Defeat ALS and advocated for ALS alongside staff. The support, compassion, referrals, and connections I have received through ALS United Greater Chicago have made this journey manageable and bearable. Staying connecting empowers me and allows me to give back.
