Anterior Horn Cell disease

I am observing the following difficulties of my patient who is living with Anterior Horn Cell Disease. The patient is my husband. He is living with Anterior Horn Cell disease from January 2007. My question is what is the stage of the disease? What can I do for him now?
• Patient can’t move his hands, legs, and neck.
• Breathing trouble
• Continuous saliva and mucus discharge from mouth
• Tongue weakness
• Speech problems
• Swallowing difficulties
• Muscles twisting
• Sleeping disorder
• Constipation
• Emotional instability, depression. Sometimes he shows irritating conduct.
• Intellect, memory or senses is okay.

Thanks.
Mrs. Nasima
