When living with MS, there are varying degrees of support needed. Some people may live independently and require assistance only with certain activities of daily living, such as bathing. Others enjoy the socialization of attending an adult day program. Long-term care services can keep people moving along a continuum, whether it is minimal or complete care. Services are available either in the home or within the community.
The Long Island Chapter provides the following:
- Information and referral regarding long-term services available in your community.
- Limited counseling and consultation on care decision-making.
- Information on resources available to finance long-term services.
- Lists of care facilities on Long Island, such as adult day care, respite care, home care services, nursing facilities and companion care.
To get more information about long-term care, please contact Jane Reilly 631.864.8337 ext. 53218 or via email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
