The Lois Insolia ALS Center at Northwestern Medical Faculty Foundation in Chicago was established in 1986 with funds from the James V. Insolia family and the Les Turner ALS Foundation. The Center is affiliated with Northwestern University’s Feinberg School of Medicine and utilizes a multidisciplinary team approach where trained specialists provide diagnostic, rehabilitative, and supportive services focusing on assessment, care planning and education. Some of the specialized services offered to patients include communication devices from the Foundation’s communication bank, mobility assistance, a patient resource guide to ALS, ventilation videos to reference, home visits by home nurse consultants and licensed clinical social worker, transportation to and from the clinic visit as needed, and free parking for patients during their appointments.
The Lois Insolia ALS Center is dedicated to the total care of people with ALS. During a visit, patients meet with several members of the team and each provides input and suggestions regarding health care needs.
