Living at home with ALS

Kent Smalter, a Lawrence man with amyotrophic lateral sclerosis, or ALS, is able to live at home thanks a coordinated network of volunteers and professionals who get him in and out of bed and take care of him throughout the day.

Billy Price maneuvers a device to put Kent Smalter into a wheelchair to start another Sunday, as Smalter's partner, Angela Nascimento, helps.
