Patients in Louisville and Southern Indiana find superior medical care and unparalleled support managing their neurological condition at Norton Neuroscience Institute.
A full range of support options for multiple sclerosis (MS) patients is one reason the National Multiple Sclerosis Society has designated Norton Neuroscience Institute’s MS program as a Center for Comprehensive MS Care.
Experiencing a chronic disease prone to unpredictable symptoms, MS patients benefit from comprehensive care that includes the expertise and viewpoints of health care providers from many specialties.
An array of medical, nursing, mental health, rehabilitation and social services are available to MS patients managing their disease and symptoms.
The Norton Neuroscience Institute Resource Center provides MS patients with social workers and nurse navigators available to help improve your access to care, provide valuable information to help manage your disease and address your quality of life issues.
Norton Neuroscience Institute Resource Center services are available at no cost to Norton Neuroscience Institute patients thanks to donations to the Norton Healthcare Foundation.
The Norton Neuroscience Institute Resource Center has devoted a team to work exclusively with patients and families navigating a multiple sclerosis diagnosis, including:
- MS nurse navigator: Works with your treatment team to provide diagnosis and medication education and patient navigation resources to help along your journey.
- Social worker: Helps families on matters including payment assistance for medications and coordination of in-home assistance
- Psychologist: Assists patients and families with common issues faced by those with MS, including anxiety and depression
- Pharmacist: Assists patients with prescription guidance and navigation of testing and other medication requirements
The Norton Neuroscience Institute Resource Center and the dedicated MS support staff ensure all patient questions are answered and work with you and your caregivers to coordinate exceptional care.
At Norton Neuroscience Institute Resource Center, we work to ensure all patients are educated on their prescription options and have adequate access to their preferred treatment. The MS nurse navigator, social worker, and pharmacist work alongside patients to determine the best course of medication, in addition to offering application assistance for financial aid and insurance coverage options.
