This study investigated QoL factors for persons with ALS and their caregivers as a unit. People ALS and their caregivers completed the Schedule for the Evaluation of Quality of Life—Direct Weight jointly to identify QoL factors most important to the dyad. The three most commonly chosen QoL factors include family, spirituality, and leisure. Identifying key QoL factors will allow OTs to provide improved client- and family-centered care that is more holistic.
