  • Provides Case Management* for up to ten (10) families with MS.

* Case Managers can educate patients with regard to symptom management, relapse prevention, and the importance of treatment adherence.2 Case managers also play an essential role as health care coordinators, ensuring that patients receive the comprehensive, multidisciplinary care that is required to improve outcomes.  The case manager can help develop an individualized plan of care in which symptom management, social support, and containment of costs are all addressed.2 As patient advocates, case managers can assist patients in getting the appropriate treatments to help improve their quality of life and reduce costs for all stakeholders.   

The increased complexity in the management of care for MS patients, in addition to barriers of treatment adherence, makes it necessary for the case manager to be interactively involved in all aspects of patient care. Case managers play a crucial role in improving patient outcomes by integrating the multidisciplinary team and promoting evidence-based decision making that incorporates the patient’s needs and wishes.

The primary goal of our Respite Care Program is to allow the caregiver a break from daily responsibilities.
