A 42-year-old man with ALS and his wife would love a volunteer to help them with household chores and/or meal prep. They would ideally like a volunteer who is able to visit once a week for 1-3 hours at a time. Their schedule is quite flexible: any day of the week would work for a volunteer to visit in the morning or afternoon. They do have a dog in their home.
If you have an extra hour or two each week to help a neighbor in need, we'd love to hear from you! This opportunity is part of the ALS Association's Family Assistance Program (this site indicates different states, but the program was recently rolled out in Wisconsin!):
