Most people diagnosed with ALS experience difficulty with speech and movement during the progression of the disease. Our goal is to use technology to help with communication and mobility, enabling them to continue to be an active participant in their family and community, provide independence, and help make informed medical decisions. This technology includes Durable Medical Equipment (DME) and Augmentative and Alternative Communication (AAC).
We understand how expensive it can be to care for a person living with ALS and recognize the importance of the equipment required to provide the best quality of life. Our Equipment Loan Program offers temporary loaner equipment to Florida residents with a verified diagnosis of ALS who are uninsured, underinsured, who cannot access the benefits of their insurance (while in a nursing home, an assisted living facility, or hospice), or who are waiting for insurance approval. Please note that loaner equipment is subject to availability.
