Good Shepherd Rehabilitation Offers New Support Group for People Living with Multiple Sclerosis

January 01, 2018

Allentown, PA – Good Shepherd Rehabilitation is offering a new support group focused on individuals living with multiple sclerosis (MS) and their families. The first meeting will be held on Saturday, January 13 from 10:30 a.m. to 12 p.m. at Good Shepherd Rehabilitation at St. Luke’s Monroe Campus, 100 St. Luke’s Lane, Stroudsburg. Meetings will be held on the fourth floor in the Good Shepherd Community Dining Room on the second Saturday of every month.

The group will provide participants with opportunities to gain peer support as well as receive information about the latest research, treatments, programs and services available for people living with MS. Patients and support partners will have the opportunity to share successes and challenges and learn from one another.

Good Shepherd provides a full continuum of care to individuals who have been diagnosed with multiple sclerosis, which occurs when the body’s immune system attacks the protective sheath (myelin) that covers nerves, making it difficult for nerves to communicate with the brain. Therapy is provided on an inpatient, outpatient and in-home basis, depending on each patient’s needs. Rehabilitation also may include psychology services, wellness services (including therapeutic art, gentle yoga, seated exercise classes, etc.), support groups for patients and caregivers and long-term residential care.

The National MS Society has designated Good Shepherd as a Partner in MS Care, a national program that recognizes and supports quality care for individuals living with multiple sclerosis.

For information, please contact Craig Solt at 570-476-0637.
