@allegro I am so sorry for what you and your husband are going through. I really know nothing about ALS but it sounds devastating. Along with the help of your children, you probably could get a visiting nurse or someone to come in, as @lioness suggested. That might help a bit. There are Medicare benefits for services like that. I am sure it would be extremely difficult to put a loved in a nursing home.
Thoughts and prayers are with you.
