The CCALS Medicine Bag

CCALS has used our many years of experience working with ALS families to put together a collection of the best non-institutional resources that help bring dignity to those living with ALS. Our Medicine Bag is given to all new CCALS families and contains products like Gait Belts and Transfer Slings, that help patients stand and transfer from one space to another, and Pivot Disks, on which the patient stands to move from one location to the next when they can no longer move their legs. It also includes inspirational books and CDs that we have found beneficial. The Medicine Bag contains many items not covered by insurance that families might not anticipate needing when first diagnosed, but will be grateful to have at their disposal down the road.
