"A counsellor was a great help to our entire family when we learned of my son’s illness. She dealt with the situation on a completely factual basis with no ‘sugar coating,’ but at the same time showed a deft understanding of what a newly diagnosed patient might be thinking. He now has a great attitude, and looks forward to his life, whatever may unfold."
Mark, Father of an MS Patient

In our efforts to promote quality of life for patients and their families, we are committed to providing services that support individuals and families with MS throughout their entire MS journey.

We understand that every person experiences MS differently, and that one person's MS can have a profound impact on their loved ones as well. Led by MS counseling and education experts, we offer counseling and support services to clients and their families, and referrals to experienced and qualified professionals for further treatment.

Each year Tom Stewart, attorney and registered PA, helps more than 350 people with MS navigate the process of applying for Social Security Disability Insurance. The hydrotherapy program, led by Michelle Harrison, is one of the best programs in the metro Denver area and a highlight for our KADEP clients.
