Led by professionals, Support Groups provide opportunities for group members to share their personal experiences and to learn more about living with ALS. Participants learn that they are not alone nor without help or hope. Support Group meetings are free and open to all people living with ALS and their caregivers. Support Groups sometimes feature speakers on relevant topics and are designed to share information as well as strategies for preserving the independence and quality of life of both people living with ALS and their caregivers.
What You Can Expect
- Tips and practical solutions for navigating the everyday challenges of living with ALS.

- Connection and support from other people living with ALS, caregivers, and loved ones.

After the full spectrum of emotions you would expect, I realized that I could basically either give up and withdraw or fight and make the most of the time I have left...The support groups not only help to show you're not alone but are a great place to get information that you might not otherwise easily find on your own. I think on the the reasons I'm still here going on 6 years is because I've had people to lean on including the ALS Association staff, as well as the people I've met a the support group. I know that dealing with this disease, even small things can be an ordeal, but I really do believe that you'll find attending the support group beneficial.
