Care Management Program
Often, living with MS can be overwhelming. Some people who have MS are unable to identify and tap into available community resources that can help them cope with the challenges of having a chronic disease. In the chapter's Care Management Program, a social worker is sent into a client's home to assess, plan and coordinate needs relating to long-term care issues, access to entitlements and financial management. Appropriate referrals to community services and resources are also given. This program can provide the hands-on assistance that many people may need to improve their quality of life and remain independent.
