The ALS Society of NB-NS is a non-profit society, created out of necessity and filling an essential need. We help people living with ALS navigate and integrate their complete ALS healthcare management - body, mind, and soul. The society loans, with no needs testing, and at no charge mobility, communication, and breathing equipment that sustains and supports health, independence and best quality of life.
In 2016 we loaned 600+ pieces of equipment to 128 families in 66 communities, valued at $800k+!
To help people with ALS and their families live their best lives we also host support groups, provide financial support so children can remain in their extra-curricular activities and help people (and their family members) access free psychological services.
Here is what we tell people living with ALS:
- YOU ARE NOT ALONE!
- We have the information and resources you need to get the most from your life.
- You may have ALS but ALS doesn’t have you. You are so much more.
We can only do this with your help. Thank you.
