MS & ALS Care
People with MS or ALS have options to remain safe and comfortable at home and receive the care they need.
At Affinity Health, we know how upsetting a diagnosis can be, and how challenging it is to come to terms with the new realities that come along with that diagnosis. Whether you suffer from Multiple Sclerosis (MS) or Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS), our caregivers are dedicated to helping support you through the challenges that you may have to face.
