Upon admittance to the program, each person's specific needs are identified by MS Achievement Center staff and progress is monitored on an ongoing basis. Two days a week, participants attend various activities and programs designed to maximize different aspects of their well-being, including:
Customized fitness programs with our expert staff help members improve or maintain functional abilities and mobility.
Through support groups and emotional health interventions, members learn to reduce stress and improve their emotional status.
Members participate in recreational activities designed to enhance mental acuity.
Experts share information about disease management, symptom management, nutrition and general health practices to help members make optimal lifestyle and health decisions in conjunction with their personal physicians.
The M.S. Center operates Tuesdays and Thursdays. Core activities run from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. However, doors open at 8:30 a.m. and close at 4:30 p.m., allowing individuals to arrive early or stay late for elective activities such as music therapy or a discussion of current events.
The MS Achievement Center is open to anyone who has been diagnosed with multiple sclerosis. For admittance into the program, participants must:
- Be able to attend a five-hour block of activities two days per week
- Make arrangements for transportation to and from the Center
Individuals can self-refer. MS Achievement Center staff will work with the participant's physician to keep them apprised of progress toward specific goals. Primary care physicians or other specialists can also refer.
There is no mandatory end date to a person's participation in the program and insurance is not billed. Payment is on a sliding scale.
