ALS Clinics and Centers
ALS United Connecticut collaborates with some of the best ALS physicians and clinics across the United States to help ensure that people living with ALS have access to specialized care, based on best practices. ALS CT works closely with individual neurologists, multidisciplinary clinics, the Veteran's Administration and other healthcare providers to provide compassionate and knowledgeable care.
Many people living with ALS receive treatment from individual neurologists, hospitals, hospices and VNAs. The ALS United Connecticut Care Services Team works with anyone providing care.
Best practices for ALS can include a multidisciplinary care model that brings together a team of health care professionals specially trained to address the needs of people living with ALS, allowing them to receive care from each discipline during a single visit. The care team typically includes a neurologist, physical therapist, occupational therapist, respiratory therapist, nurse, nutritionist, speech language pathologist, social worker, mental health professional and an ALS Connecticut liaison.
