A 60-year-old woman with ALS is seeking a volunteer to assist with cleaning and provide companionship. She and her husband would appreciate a volunteer visiting for approximately 3 hours at a time, either weekly or every other week. Afternoons work best for them, but they are flexible on timing and could do late afternoon/evening times (such as 4-7 or 5-8 pm) for volunteers with conflicts during the day.

This opportunity is part of the ALS Association's Family Assistance Program:
