At the Rocky Mountain MS Center, our top priority is always the health and safety of individuals and families living with MS. Now more than ever, we know it’s important to do everything we can to continue to provide quality care, education, and support for you. We truly are all in this together and we want you to know that we are here for you.
To safeguard our community during the COVID-19 pandemic, all of our employees are temporarily working from home. Our partners at the RMMSC at University of Colorado are continuing to provide excellent care to patients primarily through telehealth visits. Our King Adult Day Enrichment Program (KADEP) and our hydrotherapy program have been temporarily suspended. Our team is staying connected with our day program clients through online programming and resources. Our MS 101 classes and counseling sessions are being conducted online.
Below are resources and upcoming programs that we hope will be helpful for you.
We’ve collected information specific to our MS community on our website, where you can stay informed with the latest updates we have for you. CLICK HERE.
Dr. Enrique Alvarez conducted a virtual Q&A session last week, focused on how the COVID-19 crisis is impacting the MS Community. We’ve archived the entire hour-long presentation on our YouTube channel. CLICK HERE.
Having MS is difficult in and of itself, let alone while we all navigate the current state of affairs regarding COVID-19. Join us live online, Tuesday, March 31, starting at 10 a.m. mountain time for a webinar with Elissa Berlinger, licensed clinical social worker and MS educator. The ever-changing news and information can be overwhelming and anxiety inducing. In this webinar, we will explore ways to manage the uncertainty and unknown, how stress can impact MS symptoms, ways to take care of yourself and your needs while you are staying home, and provide some resources and ideas to support you in this difficult time.
Staying connected, active, and calm during these difficult times is challenging, but we have been so grateful to find so many amazing and creative resources and online programming being offered right now. We have compiled a list of those resources including ways to stay active at home, fun things to do online (tours, concerts, educational activities, zoo cams, and more!), opportunities to socialize virtually, mental health resources, food and supply links, and volunteering opportunities.

Thank you for all you are doing to keep our community safe and healthy. We will get through this together. Please don’t hesitate to reach out with questions. We will continue to do our best to deliver meaningful services to you and your family.
