One of the first commitments that The ALS Association Greater Philadelphia Chapter made to ALS families was to provide them with compassion and support through group meetings. Before the Chapter could develop the comprehensive care services taht it has today, it had to listen to the needs of those affected by ALS. That started with meetings at the homes of people like Ben and Dottie Ohrenstein.
In 2017, as part of the Chapter's 40th Anniversary, the Chapter is Honoring the Promise of those early groups and Advancing the Mission through more specialist resource groups in a wider geography. In this podcast, Alair Altiero, PhD., talks about the Chapter's Resource Group program and how it continues to evolve to fit the needs of ALS patients and caregivers.
