Approximately 20-25 percent of individuals with MS will need long-term services and supports at some point, and approximately 5-10 percent will require residential care. People with MS need choices across the full range of age-appropriate and affordable home-based, community- and facility-based health and social service options to meet individual needs and preferences.
Some people with MS rely on assistive technology and/or medical equipment like wheelchairs to remain healthy, independent and active. CRT are medically necessary and individually configured manual and power wheelchairs and seating and positioning systems for those with progressed MS. Many times, CRT products have “accessories”—such as tilt-and-recline systems and customized seat cushions—that make the chair usable and beneficial.
Urge your elected officials to support long term services and supports for people living with and affected by MS.
