In brief: Very difficult

ALS is a progressive nasty disease with NO cure or even significant control other than Riluzole, and causes muscular atrophy, weakness, fasciculations, and eventual inability to swallow or breathe.
As you can imagine, these problems require extensive medical care and diligence, and interventions which may be very complex.
