ALS causes unprecedented upheavals in everyone’s daily life. Not everyone affected by ALS is spared. Even the most considerate may need it someday.
There are many provincial, government, community support, food security assistance, and financial support programs and resources that could help you meet your most pressing needs.
If you are in a precarious situation and you do not have sufficient financial resources to meet your daily needs, speak with your health care team to assess whether you may be able to receive support from us. We provide a last-resort assistance service on a short-term basis depending on the funds available. Financial assistance is reserved for financially and socially vulnerable families with urgent needs linked to the disease and which cannot be addressed by: existing health and social services networks; regional community resources; insurance or government programs. If you have any questions or concerns about your situation, please contact us. We will be happy to help you find resources and help you take the steps that could bring support.
The request for financial assistance must be made by a health professional from a local community service center (CLSC), integrated (university) health and social services center (CISSS or CIUSSS) or a health institution, long-term care, or palliative care.
Please note that we will not reimburse any purchases or rentals of equipment or charges for services that precede the submission and processing of a request by the Company. Before undertaking any expense, contact us. We are here to help you.
This support program offers last resort and short-term assistance. Given our status as a community organization, our role is to compensate for delays and shortcomings in government programs, not to replace them. This program is made possible through grants and donations, and varies with available funds.
