ALS Values Assessment Tool Helps Patients Make Important Decisions

ALS Values Assessment Tool Helps Patients Make Important Decisions

Posted on Feb 15, 2024

We understand the wave of emotions individuals and their loved ones experience after learning they have Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) – sadness, anger, shock, and fear. People living with ALS face many unknowns concerning their future. Many are seeking answers to questions they have about their future. A multidisciplinary team of Unity clinicians with decades of collective ALS experience, with input from ALS United Greater Chicago, developed a comprehensive guide to help ALS patients make essential decisions as their condition progresses.

Key features of the ALS Values Assessment Guide helps patients and their caregivers:

  • Identify Support Resources
  • Understand Their Condition
  • Consider Important Choices
  • Assess Personal Values
  • Gain Insight on Future Needs

In the realm of ALS care, informed decision-making is paramount. The ALS Values Assessment Guide empowers patients and their caregivers to navigate the complexities of ALS, providing a roadmap for collaborative decision-making based on the values and priorities of those living with ALS.

Download the guide and enhance the quality of care provided to individuals and families affected by ALS.
