 The Edward M. Dowd Personal Advocate Program aims to increase independent living capabilities and quality of life for people affected by MS whose health and safety are compromised by limited knowledge, understanding, and/or ability to access programs and benefits. Individuals in need of this service are identified by:
  • Multiple, urgent issues and significant MS-related symptoms and/or disability
  • Significant changes in physical or mental health, or cognition
  • Inability of family or caregiver(s) to provide care or cope
  • Isolation (including being homebound), living alone, or other health or safety risks
  • Lack of home care, adequate housing, or other vital services
  • Inability to identify needs, e.g., scattered assistance requests or signs of being overwhelmed
  • Imminent potential of admission to a long-term care facility
