Information & Updates
The safety of our Les Turner ALS family, especially those living with ALS, is our top priority. People living with ALS are at an increased risk of respiratory problems associated with viral and bacterial infections.
Due to the current Coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak we have paused all in-person Les Turner ALS Foundation support service visits from our nurses and social workers and all in-person support groups until further notice.
As always, we will remain a phone call away and will continue to provide personalized support services via teleconference and phone calls to ensure people living with ALS and their families continue to receive all the help they need.
Our number one goal as a Foundation is to support all our families living with ALS through this outbreak. We will continue to assess the evolving situation with the priority of keeping our families safe.
We will provide an update when we are able to resume in-person home visits and support groups.
