Community support is there for you. When you’re facing a chronic illness like Alzheimer’s, MS or Parkinson’s, you, your loved ones, and caregivers need support and resources beyond traditional medical treatment. Supportive services and resources are available within the community and we’ll help you find and use them.
NSCFF’s Community Partner Coordinator will help find the services you’ll need and guide you to existing resources. As part of your patient care team, the Coordinator works with community agencies like:
- United HomeCare: Providers of in-home treatments and care, nursing care, social workers and case managers, referrals, and supplemental care in the home setting
- The Alzheimer’s Association: Information for caregivers, education, respite care, early diagnosis support groups, family and caregiver programs, and a 24-hour dementia-specific helpline
- Multiple Sclerosis Foundation: Extensive library of free information to help manage MS care
- National Parkinson’s Foundation: Global network serving needs of Parkinson’s community
- Alliance on Aging: Advice and guidance on senior healthcare, help with arranging home-delivered meals as well as legal support and transportation
- Easter Seals: Programs for seniors and caregivers for day care, organization of senior social activities, and coordination with the Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s associations
- Florida Department of Health: Important health information for Floridians
- Brain & Spinal Cord Injury Program: Information and support for those with brain and spinal injuries
- MS Views and News: Website and organization created by MS patients to help provide educational information for the global MS community.
